      Critics Consensus

      A dull adaptation of Sebastian Faulk's novel despite gorgeous cinematography and Cate Blanchett's best efforts.

      Nell Minow Common Sense Media Mature material in this old-fashioned WWII movie. Rated: 3/5 Dec 22, 2010 Full Review Empire Magazine Rated: 3/5 Dec 30, 2006 Full Review Kimberley Jones Austin Chronicle Rated: 2/5 Mar 10, 2003 Full Review Sophie Gorman The Herald (Ireland) There is velvety rich cinematography, an evocative score, beautiful period pieces and some captivating performances, but they fail to unite and do justice to the literary source. Oct 17, 2017 Full Review John A. Nesbit Old School Reviews One day Blanchett may get a part that melts her virginal ice queen formality, but this isn't the film Rated: C- Feb 21, 2011 Full Review Robert Roten Laramie Movie Scope Does a pretty good job of capturing some of the least romantic aspects of World War II.

      Alec B I'm a little perplexed at the mostly negative response. Yeah the screenplay could have used a little polishing but overall it is a mature thriller with excellent performances. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/10/24 Full Review Lanfranco C More boredom than passion Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 11/12/23 Full Review Savannah G Screenplay could have used some more work but the Characters and the story all the way to the very end was very touching. Cate really carried this whole story and Character build all the way through. The ending had me thinking for a few days. there are so many stories through this time frame that we really dont know about. Would recommend to at least see. Love Cate. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/30/22 Full Review Ken R After hearing this was about the exploits of some of the most decorated and highly regarded Special Operations women in wartime history – it quickly became obvious it was wrong to listen to those who compared Charlotte Gray to brave resistance giants like Nancy Wake, etc. For those who don't care to examine fine story details or fans of Gillian Armstrong and Kate Blanchet, this will fit the bill nicely - others may find themselves lulled into disappointment. Was it the director who invested too much energy into arty and flamboyant camera movements, instead of concentrating on essential story and character development? Or was it her D.O.P. (Dion Beebe) rehearsing for his next project ‘Chicago' (that was much more suited to this flamboyant style) Kate Blanchet seemed to be playing by numbers as if she perhaps might also have felt her character's motivations were underdeveloped. The romantic Mills and Boon ending also added to the feel the whole thing trivialized the seriousness and tragedy of the French resistance. Among other situations, it was hard to understand why the ‘underground' resistance fighter (Billy Crudup) would attract attention by screaming hateful abuse --in broad daylight-- while the German army was rolling through the streets of collaborating Vichy! Out of all, Michael Gambon fairs best as his father. It's a pity this serious subject was largely glossed over. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 04/26/22 Full Review Audience Member I'm a little perplexed at the mostly negative response. Yeah the screenplay could have used a little polishing but overall it is a mature thriller with excellent performances. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member If you're especially interested in female spies during WWII, you'll enjoy this film. Critics find it dull and plodding, but there are so few films about these female spies that I believe it's really worth watching. If you enjoy it, you might also enjoy the novel Charlotte Gray. If you'd like to watch a film about the same time period and want to see 3 female spies, instead of one, then opt for the more recent film "A Call to Spy" which also features the exploits of an American female spy, who spied for Britain because America was not yet in the war. It is a less commercial film and amazingly enough this American female spy had a wooden leg and had to hike through the the mountain range separating France from Spain.
