A Walk In The Clouds is a fairly lousy follow up (in comparison) for Alfonso Arau who's previous film was the romantic masterpiece 'Like Water For Chocolate'. It was a film so thickly textured and beautiful. And so for his next movie he turned to America and cast Keanu Reeves in the lead. While nowhere near as amazing as LWFC, it's still a charming film. The settings are picturesque and the aesthetic is quite stunning. It's just a shame that the story falls a little flat... but hey, its still a nice movie to cuddle up to with your chickee babe if she's not in the mood for subtitles (LWFC is Mexican).
