Trivia

The correct German translation for "Cloud Nine" would be "Cloud Seven". Nevertheless, the director liked the number "9" in the original title better, which he took from a The Beatles song. He also once joked about naming the film "Cloud Eleven", when it would be released in English speaking countries, thus remaining the in-joke. See more »

May be good - who knows? Not me; I was near comatose within half an hour.
13 November 2011 | by (Yorkshire, England) – See all my reviews

This may be a good film. I have not the faintest idea in terms of how it develops beyond the first half hour, as that is all I could take before I feared that terminal boredom would get me for sure and I put on my recording of "Destry rides again" (James Stewart/Marlene Dietrich) to bring me back to life! I have heard that watching paint dry can be tiresome, but I found this, with its interminable panning shots and mumbled dialogue, the equivalent of listening to someone watching paint dry! No thanks/life's too short (as I presume was "the message" of this rambling cinematic outing????)Why DO so many German films have to be such stodgy, indigestible, s - l - o - w affairs? "Run, Lola, run" proves beyond the slightest doubt that they do not have to be!
