Editorial Reviews

Lena is the light-skinned daughter of an Aboriginal mother and Irish father and Vaughn is a Murri boy doing time in a minimum security prison in North West Australia. Dramatic events throw them together on a journey with no money and no transport. To Lena, Vaughn represents the life she is running away from. To Vaughn, Lena embodies the society that has rejected him. And for a very short amount of time, they experience a rare true happiness together.

A waste of film - a waste of time.

Danielle Hall and Daminan Pitt are very moving (great casting) - the story is well told: an excellent roadmovie!

I suppose it does have a love your neighbor/do unto others kind of theme.

I think it's important to state right off that this movie script has the f-word in most every sentence/comment. If that isn't off-putting enough, the movie is also very boring and bleak/depressing - and at the end you realize it was also completely pointless and that "love story" ain't happening.

A waste of film - a waste of time.

FULL STORY (if you really want it):
The movie begins with Lena - a young white girl from a LOW income home - on her way home (from school?) Her and her girlfriend are sitting at a bus stop where the girlfriend tells her she is pregnant. Lena tells her she'll never get out of this s-hole then. As Lena continues to wait, her younger brother and a friend ride up on bicycles, smoking cigarettes. A police car goes by and the boys ride off -- Lena arrives at home to see a police car with her brothers friend in back, the brother being loaded into it and the 2nd officer coming out of the house with an armful of cigarette cartons the boys had evidently stole. She goes inside and her mom is at the kitchen table with empty beer bottles on it and the mom drinking from another. Her husband (or boyfriend?) in the living-room watching tv. She looks at her mom who says something to the effect that she needed a break from him anyways. They argue a bit. Lena goes to her room looks at a scrapbook of photos of her father and the next morning she sets off to find him, with only a vague idea he might be in Sydney.

Next you meet Vaughn - a gang kid in what appears to be a youth prison work camp area. He is clearly full of hate for whites and has plenty of will to fight.

This is a classic Aussie film about two kids, from different (but similar) backgrounds meeting and taking a journey together. The texture of the outback and the indigenous characters make it stand out. Very relevant to N. America and our own racial issues. I would suggest getting this when it comes out.

I loved this film. To me it is a great love story. It's sparse and tense. The interaction of all of the protagonists has a keen edge. The acting and story are very real - no excuses, explanations, or apology, rather an opportunity to see life in contemporary Australia. I'll watch it again.

I cant believe this movie is so poorly rated. Some fool is even complaining that it has the f word too many times. I guess since it doesnt have all the cgi & shoot 'em up reicpe for all the mediocre rehash junk that comes out of hollywood it must be boring. For you inpatient people I recomend some regurgitated hollywood dribble, go drink it up.
Those who seem to be getting caught up in "semantics" and the cursing (its not rated G or PG) are missing the point, & thess sort of movies (where you actually have to think) are obviously over your heads.
GREAT FILM, very poignant, IF you have the capacity to concentrate, if you dont, go watch something with Angelina or go listen to gaga.

An interesting look at the life in outback Australia. Worth watching and definitely an eye opener. Compare this to the life of an American Indian.

Great in the Ivan Sven style - a coming of age story. How do teenages cope in a god forsaken part of the world with their aboriginal past and no job perspective? How do they meet beyond (racial, etc) prejudices? Wide landscape, low horizon, and hope still in between the clouds... Sven shows us again how we can rise to true humanity under harsh circumstances. Danielle Hall and Daminan Pitt are very moving (great casting) - the story is well told: an excellent roadmovie!

Other reviewers found this movie disappointing, with an ending that made them feel like they wasted their time. Well, they completely missed the point of the film. It's a character study on race relations, meant to make you think. What would you have done had you been in Vaughn or Lena's situation? Would you have been able to see past the fact that the guy/girl you're traveling with is a member of the race that you have either been taught your entire life to hate and despise (Vaughn) or have an almost unconscious prejudice towards (Lena)? To be fair to the bad reviewers, the film is mischaracterized on Amazon as romance. It's not -- it's about two teens having opening their eyes to racial equality (in Lena's case, inequality) for the first time in their lives, and struggling to come to terms with their realizations.
If you're thinking of watching this for coming-of-age romantic dreck, then don't. However, if you want to experience a remarkably well-written thought-provoking character study, then by all means watch "Beneath Clouds". You won't be sorry yoyu did.

This film provides a terrific view of the differences in class culture in Australia, juxtaposing the lives of 2 kids, basically from the same background, but with the chance difference of racial characteristics and color. The movie gives the viewer a quick but surprisingly relatively deep understanding of race issues in Australia in one short movie-length glance.

The scenery, sets, dialogue, and acting are on-point for Australia, underscoring the pace, feel, and sense of place that accurately portrays the lives, home-life, and dwellings of its characters.

Well-done and well worth watching--
