A young married US military soldier, Paul, returns home after World War II and meets a girl, Victoria, along the way. Victoria is pregnant and terrified of returning home to her Mexican family where her strict over protective father will surely disapprove of her out of wedlock pregnancy. Wanting to help, Paul offers to pose as her husband to calm things over until such time he is free to leave again but as they spend time together, they start falling in love with each other. However, Paul is still married and they have to hold themselves back before fate would intervene and tragedy would ensue and they would finally be together.Written by
The names of the characters played by Angélica Aragón and Evangelina Elizondo are written under English standards, not hispanic ones. In spanish the correct would be "María José de Aragón" and "Guadalupe de Aragón". See more »
During the latter half of the grape-crushing scene when Paul Sutton is also in the large tub, Alberto Aragon and his wife Marie Jose stand behind it, cheering. Son Pedro Jr is just in front of them during the wide shots, but there's one close-up shot of the couple where Pedro Jr is suddenly absent. See more »

It always amazes how many opinions can come from the viewing of the same movie. But this movie should have as many admirers as possible.
OK, the ending is predictable. So is eating, sleeping, working and making love. Is that any reason not to watch a movie?
What makes CLOUDS wonderful is the ride. It is a beautifully acted ride: Keanu Reeves acting his guts out plus: international sensation Sanchez-Gijon, noted actress Aragon, veteran actress Elizondo, Giannini the legend and the irresistible Anthony Quinn, Beautifully directed: Alfonso Arau, Wonderful cinematography: Emmanuel Lubezki, the wonderful music of Maurice Jarre and the song by Cuban Guitar composer, pedagogue and legend Leo Brouwer.
What is bad about smiling during a movie? I found myself smiling and giggling during the grape stomping scene. Does it hurt when you laugh? I guess only if you are jaded, spoiled and bored with life.
There is love, mysticism and joy...This is a movie to savor and breath in and enjoy the wonderful..
Walk in the Clouds....
