  • Dresen films much of the movie in close-up and medium shots, making sure we see every wrinkle and age spot, every expression, every emotion.

  • Cloud 9 is most moving when it steps quietly into the gap between physical decline and the persistence, at full blast, of unfulfilled longing and desire.

  • There is tragedy and awkwardness here, but Cloud 9 never feels like a chore.

  • Sometimes, apparently, the old saw about the heart wanting what it wants can apply to seniors precisely the same way it does to the young and foolish.

    July 29, 2010 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The film may attract older moviegoers curious to see their generation represented onscreen doing what comes naturally for once. It's doubtful that the general audience will be so inclined.

    A suprisingly good film! Yes this movie has full nudity & sex scenes of old people doing it but theres so much more to it then just that.Watch it & see.Nicely done

    While it is refreshing that "Cloud 9" treats its senior characters as sexual beings, there remains the question of whether the casual nudity and graphic sexuality is meant as a celebration or that it is simply meant to shock due to its getting so in the face of the viewer. Also, of dubious credibility is why Inge(Ursula Werner) would suddenly get sexually involved with Karl(Horst Westphal) who she only knows from mending his pants, as this would run very much against her character as a good wife and upstanding member of the choir.(After the first encounter, she does hesitate talking to Karl again.) Could it be that her husband of 30 years, Werner(Horst Rehberg), is the most boring person on the planet because he enjoys listening to the sound of trains?(I love trains but not that much...) What is known is that Werner married Inge after she already had her daughter Petra(Steffi Kuhnert) and she may have married him because he was nice and could support them which really should never be the basis of any marriage. So, while there might be tenderness between them, there is little love and that might explain why Petra is doing the happy dance when she finds out, especially as this might mean her mother is finding happiness for the first time in her life.
