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)
What a great, original film. It's probably one of the most depressing films I've seen in awhile, I mean it dashes any remaining hopes of an already bleak outlook on marriage in society. It brings the look on relationships after the long term. And the scary part about it is, I could see the perspective on both sides and it makes you wonder about everything that can go wrong in the long run. This is one honest film.
Cloud 9" is Ingmar Bergman-esque in feel. The story ambles along at an arthritic snail's pace, but persistence pays off as we enter the complicated lives of three German septuagenarians. Their wrinkled bodies and graphic sexual activities are "nakedly" ... and I do mean nakedly.... laid bare before us. We witness raw, frank emotional conflicts and struggle to make sense of one woman's questionable behavior. This is a thought provoking and disturbing film, but well worth your attention, if you have the courage to watch.
I watch quite a few foreign and artsy films, but this one didn't do it for me and I didn't even finish it. I'll be quite frank, I'm not into the old people sex and nakedness. I really didn't get the point of the movie except this elderly likes to have a lot of sex. Thought the movie was boring and I kind of got grossed out.
