Critic Reviews for Wolke Neun (Cloud 9)
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.
The heart is a riddle, and Cloud 9 deftly, wittily counts the ways.
The result is a film in which age matters not at all and yet still matters hugely, and in which love is still a dream come true and an absolute mess.
Manages to be vital, wrenching and even humorous yet does not deny the omnipresence of mortality.
Mr. Dresen and his actors create an atmosphere of reckless vulnerability that's immediately compelling and artistically intriguing. We want to explore this relationship further.
Audience Reviews for Wolke Neun (Cloud 9)
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.
