A Walk in the Clouds—Commitment to Family
As an orphan, Paul is dying to have a large family, while for Victoria, family to some extent is burden, so when they meet it is inevitable to have ‘accidents’. As a solider, Paul is loyal to his
country and his wife, so when he falls in love with Victoria he feels frightened because of his promise to his wife who barely knows his dream and his ambition. The happy ending is so artificial that I doubt its reality, but of course it is just a film. Paul is contrasted with Victoria’s
father, who is so old-fashioned that he hates all the strangers coming to his family, and is enlightened by Victoria’s grandfather, who is such a kind and wise old man that he eventually helps Paul find his true love—Victoria.
The film is about love and family and commitment. The grape garden is like a paradise on the earth.
