Very interesting and thought provoking.

It is all in the acting, the expressions, the feelings of love, lust, and the guilt that goes along with an affair.

Most people are not too keen watching old people (seniors) having sex; if you can get past that, then you can relate to an emotional film about seniors in a sexual affair, and the consequences of the disturbing effects of a love affair. As in many foreign film, there is full frontal nudity, (male and female) and probably the most sexual scenes in a film portrayed by the aging. Surprisingly we have a rare peek into the sexual aspect of an affair of the aging.

Inge is a seamstress in her mid 60s and has been married to Werner for 30 years; he has helped raise her children to adults. When she repairs 76 year-old Karl's clothes, a tender relationship begins, a sexual relationship. She is torn between a man who committed his life to her, loved her, her children, and for the man who she gets butterflies in her stomach. When she is with her new lover Karl, she has guilt on her face; when she is with her husband, Werner, she has emotional and sexual feelings for Karl. It is like torn between the past and the future, the old and the new.

There is no soundtrack in the film, and the only music one hears is from the interspersed clips of Inge at her senior ladies' choir. The ranges of emotion are plenty here, and with minimal dialogue it is easy to interpret. It is all in the acting, the expressions, the feelings of love, lust, and the guilt that goes along with an affair.

Inge continues the affair and shares the shocking information to her daughter. From then on, lives of those involved change. What would one do in a situation like this, how do you expect your partner of 30 years to react, and is this a fling, or will it continue as long as it can? We are left without a few clues, but it is all in the face, the movements determine the storyline.

I recently watched Cloud Nine with my husband and I was surprised at how deeply the film portrays "the realness" of relationships. I have never seen the intimate sexual lives of people much over 40,let alone over 65 portrayed on film! It was refreshing and painful in its honesty that you do not control who you love...and that the feelings, both emotional and physical, never stop. The comfort that the actors feel in their own skins transmits to the viewer. We are all human and we all make mistakes, most of us don't set out to deliberately hurt others, especially those we love and when we do, we live with the consequences as best we know how. The female lead is a wonder. I hope that I will have the courage and honesty to face my life's continuing challenges in such a powerful way. I highly recommend this film for people who don't need a lot of soft lighting and cosmetic fixes to enjoy a movie.

My wife and I are over 60 and we watched this movie with a great interest. Love making scenes are wonderful and not disturbing. This is(probably) the first time in the movie history the subject of a love affair after 65 has been depicted and shut as a fictional movie story.
It is a good movie for the seniors population. And of course this is the European (German) movie. We, in United States consider this subject taboo, but do not worry, get this DVD and enjoy.

It's unlikely that his 2009 German film about a 67-year-old woman in an extramarital sexual affair with a 76-year-old man will be everyone's cup of tea. But even if you are young (up to 55, say) and imagine that "elders" don't have sex, this simply told love story might open up hopes for your future. A 78-year-old myself, I found it wonderfully affirming.

This is not your typical over love story that you might see Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie acting in. I was shocked that it was love affair about seniors. Very interesting and thought provoking. In the US, we are bombarded with sexy, young Hollywood actors. The characters are normal folks, living their everyday lives. I never think that seniors love and with that, they have physical and sexual needs - the need to be desired and held. As much as I believe the two having the affair loved each other, I could not sense the depth oh their love. I think parts of the movie could have been better explained - like how Inge with whom she had the affair, how she met him. Maybe their passion was not hot enough for my senses. Overall, I thought the movie was enjoyable and thought provoking, I just hated how it ended - leaves ya hanging, looking for more information.

Affairs are common fodder for cinema these days, or really any day considering that they have served as the basis for films stretching all the way back to the 30's. Yes, the world is very interested in watching other people's misery.

What are NOT common are films regarding the affairs of senior citizens.

Yes, `Cloud 9' focuses on a rather explicit affair that forms between a married woman in her 60's and an older bachelor (in his 70's). Be forewarned, this film is very explicit and contains numerous scenes of sex and nudity with these elderly actors. But, once you get past whatever discomfort may be found in watching these acts unfold (and you'd be lying if you tried to pretend that it there wasn't a sense of discomfort) you are left with a pretty moving film. I won't say that it works entirely, because it doesn't, but as a whole the film is touching and it helps to shine a light on an area of relationships that we don't often consider. As one ages, people just assume that their sparks die and they remain `friends' in their marital bond, but that can't sustain a living breathing relationship. `Cloud 9' tries to uncover the reason for which an elderly woman may decide to up and leave her husband of thirty plus years.

I won't lie, the explicit nature of some scenes felt a little unnecessary. True, if they were a forty something attractive couple I probably wouldn't have that quibble, but to deny it's there would be foolish. But, a bigger note of concern comes in the form of the development of relationships. There is the obvious, which is that Inge no longer feels a connection to Werner but is completely head of heals for Karl. Outside of that obviousness though, there isn't much built on the relationships as a whole.
