A Walk in the Clouds


"A Walk in the Clouds" is a 1995 American romantic drama film directed by Alfonso Arau and starring Keanu Reeves, Aitana Sánchez-Gijón, Giancarlo Giannini, and Anthony Quinn. Written by Robert Mark Kamen, Mark Miller, and Harvey Weitzman, the film is about a young soldier returning home from World War II who is looking to settle down and start a family with the woman he impulsively married just before enlisting. After learning she is not the woman he imagined her to be, he heads north alone to Sacramento in search of work. Along the way he meets a beautiful young woman who is heading home from college to her family vineyard to help with the grape harvest. When he learns she is pregnant and was abandoned by her boyfriend, he offers to stand in as her husband so she can face her Old World domineering father. During his stay at the family vineyard, they fall in love and face the angry rejection of her father together. A Walk in the Clouds is based on the 1942 Italian film Four Steps in the Clouds, written by Piero Tellini, Cesare Zavattini, and Vittorio de Benedetti.


"A Walk in the Clouds" is the original soundtrack recording of the 1995 Golden Globe-winning film A Walk in the Clouds starring Keanu Reeves, Aitana Sánchez-Gijón, Anthony Quinn, Giancarlo Giannini and Debra Messing. Released on the Milan Records label, the original score and songs were composed by Maurice Jarre except "Crush the grapes" and the famous "Mariachi Serenade", that were composed by Leo Brouwer and Alfonso Arau. The film won the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score.
