Audience Reviews for Clouds of Sils Maria

  • Jun 09, 2016
    Hard to rate. I couldn't honestly say I loved it, and parts were down right dull, also, 2 plus hours is a big ask for this very slow movie. However, I would have to say it is a well made movie and I think there is something not immediately accessible that is good about it. It's definitely one to think about as I think a lot is personal interpretation so different people will get different messages from it. Or not at all, and be bored. I'm glad I pressed on, not sure I would watch again. I certainly will be thinking about it fir quite some time, though.

    There is so much about Clouds of Sils Maria that you won't see coming; least of all the knock out performance from Kristen Stewart. She so effortlessly holds her own against the typically magnetic Binoche to the point where she steals the show; a feat made all the more impressive considering the duo share most of the screen time together, with not a second of fineness wasted between them. Which is an important dynamic, as Clouds is fundamentally rich in character because of the two, but the light-as-air narrative moves at a glacial pace. It's slow, but the absorbing interplay of dialogue highlights the complexities in their multi-layered, nuanced performances. The honesty and openness shared by the characters often feels ethereal, much like the setting they find themselves in, but also force these characters to become far more fascinating than they would otherwise have been. Clouds is a captivating character study that will be a struggle for some, but is all the more rewarding thanks to its incredible lead performances that will stay with you long after the credits roll.

    Clouds of Sils Maria is an absorbing drama and inside look at how actors prepare for roles. While there isn't too much going on, the three lead performances, notable work from Binoche and Stewart, help make this entertaining if not spectacular. Rating: 72

    It feels a little like Bergman Lite, with Assayas going down some familiar (and occasionally a little obvious) roads. It's still intriguing however, due in no small part to Binoche who gives an unsurprisingly complex and nuanced performance . . . and you know, Stewart isn't half bad herself here.
