Description:Paul Sutton (Keanu Reeves) comes home from WWII to resume his life with his wartime wife whom he barely knows. She pressures him to take a job as a traveling salesman. He meets Victoria (Aitana Sanchez-Gijon), daughter of a proud wine maker. She's pregnant and abandoned by her lover and afraid to go home. Paul agrees to pose as her husband for a night, but his visit to the vineyard is extended and soon he and Victoria fall in love. Victoria's father is opposed to Paul and the (supposed) marriage. Paul is honorable and returns to his wife, only to find her with another man. Their marriage is annulled. Paul returns to the vineyard and fights with Victoria's father who accidentally sets the place on fire. Everything is lost, but Paul finds a vine with enough living root to replant the vineyard and all are happy.

Review - A Walk in the Clouds

Reeves and Sanchez-Gijon are fine as the couple who meet and fall in love, but everything else about the movie is way, way over-the-top—the acting, the schmaltzy plot, and the constant over-saturation of the colors in the scenes of the vineyard.
