Cloud 9 is a 2008 German language drama directed by Andreas Dresen. After 30 years of marriage, Inge (Ursula Werner) and Werner (Horst Rehberg) still have a pretty good marriage. While they have fallen into a rut, they still enjoy each others company and consider each other friends. When Inge, who makes a little money mending clothes, drops off a pair of pants at a customers house, the owner, Karl (Horst Westphal) invites her in. Almost immediately, they sense a common attraction and end up in bed. Not wanting to lie to her husband, she immediately confesses her infidelity when she comes home. At the same time, however, Inge expresses her desire to continue on with the affair. Werner, unwilling to enter into an open marriage after 30 years of marriage, balks at her suggestion. Daughter Petra (Steffi K''hnert) is completely disgusted. Now Inge must decide whether to stay with the man she's loved for 30 years, or go to the man who brings passion and excitement into her life.moreless

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    These performances are so quietly effective that we watch, absorbed. I'm not sure, however, that where this film comes from quite earns the place it goes to.

    Variety Derek Elley

    Overall tone lies somewhere between Mike Leigh and Ken Loach in performances and look, with a modest tech package.
