Germany, 2008, 100 min., German with English subtitles.
Starring Ursula Werner, Horst Rehberg, Horst Westphal

Inge, a seamstress in her 60’s, returns a pair of mended trousers to Karl, a customer 10 years her senior. The two are immediately drawn to each other and, within a matter of moments, have consummated their new relationship.
Inge then returns home to Werner, to whom she has been happily married for 30 years. Though she tries to resist, Inge can’t deny her feelings for Karl, and the two begin to see each other regularly.
Even Inge’s daughter is supportive of the affair, although she urges her mother to keep it a secret. However, Inge refuses to live a lie, and her decision to tell Werner of her relationship with Karl changes both of their lives irrevocably.

With its explicit and honest love scenes, Cloud Nine rejects more mainstream depictions of the elderly in film. It is a rare late-in-life love story and Dresen is by turns fearless and tender in his handling of the material.
