DIE WOLKE (The Cloud) is about a breakdown of a nuclear power station in Germany and the story of two teenager-lovers Hannah and Elmar who take refuge. 38.000 people die and Hannah unfortunately becomes contaminated.
Alfons Zischl, mayor of Hindafing, tries to give his community a new image by building a mall for organic food. Soon enough the whole village is taking part in his corrupt games, entangling Zischl in growing debt and dubious obligations.
Dawid, Vanessa and Ludwig are the finalists at a pitch-competition for a movie about the German Rap phenomenon CRO. As the three youngsters work out their extraordinary film ideas, they must fight through unexpected personal challenges.
Sometimes one reason alone is enough to watch a movie. In this case the reason has a name: Melanie Winiger. Seriously though: While I loved the fact that the movie was trying to be different (as different as it could be, without returning too much to used clichés), it still wasn't as good and driven as I had hoped it would be.
While the actress that I mentioned is very beautiful and talented, her character suffers from poor writing. I am sure there was more to explore there (then the paper thin 2-D version she becomes), but that is true of the other characters too. Still the actors give their best and this is pretty good considering. If you can forgive the flaws, you will be able to enjoy the movie :o)
