    The first real professional success for famed French actress Maria Enders was twenty years ago as the co-lead in writer Wilhelm Melchoir's play and subsequent movie "Maloja Snake", he who picked Maria, then an unknown, personally. She played Sigrid, an opportunistic eighteen year old in an emotionally dependent lesbian relationship with forty year old Helena, who was at a vulnerable stage of her life. Maria has turned down the play's upcoming London revival in which she would now play Helena, it remounted by director Klaus Diesterweg. Her reasons for turning down the role are many including: being at a vulnerable stage of her own life going through a painful divorce; remembering the suicide of Susan Rosenberg, the original Helena, following the original run of the play, the suicide purportedly mirroring what happens to Helena; and the painful memories of the production in still having hard feelings toward who was her older male costar, Henryk Wald, with who she had an affair at the ...

    **The actors and their generation difference, evolution of cinema and the beauty of nature.** This is about a middle aged actress who spends in the Swiss Alps with her personal assistant while preparing for the upcoming project. During that time, she receives a news that the author of the book which was adapted for the screen 20 years ago where she play a main role and now in its remake, she's doing another part, while a young sensation playing the main part. This is more like the evolution of cinema. The 20 years is too soon for her, while the cinema and its trend advanced rapidly. Precisely to say, the commercial films and young actors taking over the art films and true artists' places respectively. If you at least 30 years old, you would get this film more than others. Because while I was growing up in the 90s, the cinema was so different. I'm not talking about the technology like computer graphics, but the story and how it was narrated for the screen. Now the science- fiction and dystopian themes taking over with the young audience and social media support. I think it was a quite meaningful film, particularly if you adore films like the recent evolution in cinema was so faster than ever. The negatives were, the film was too long, slow pace and too simple drama. The positives were, the actors and their performances, the locations, theme and some of the dialogues. Directed by a French filmmaker, this is an international project with a few guest appearances. Most of the film was set in the Alps. Totally different than what I was anticipating, but I still like, except in a few parts where I got bored for its weak development. So this is for the selected audience, that mean it will be appreciated by a very few and I'm kind of neutral with mostly in its favour. _6/10_

    On the way to accept an award from the playwright that discovered her - the very same man who suddenly passes away before the ceremony - acclaimed actress, Maria Enders, is forced to reconcile both her age and her role in contemporary art. While rehearsing for a role, of which she has no choice taking due to her age, she has to reckon with the young actress playing her old role. This is a slow-paced movie, that is, it takes its time revealing the deteriorating confidence of an aging actress. What accentuates her strife are the locations: the lonesome mountains, long winding roads, both straddled by rolling, ground-smothering fog and clouds. Great lingering shots and cinematography eases the eye, as Maria rehearses and incrementally loses her mind with her young assistant, Valentine. Although her assistant attempts to defend what her boss deems as insufficient art (or cinema) and unprofessional (particularly the young costar of the upcoming play), Maria threshes with the stifling fact that her roles - both her role in the play and in the world of art - are changing without her control or consideration. The acting in this film is commendable, with a solid performance from Juliette Binoche (as always) and a surprising effort from Kristen Stewart. These two carry the movie with palpable chemistry - so much so that every turn in their relationship dictates not only the environment of the film, but also the audience. This film is for the patient, and for those who don't mind huge questions.

    While maintaining a sleek art-house-esque aesthetic and narrative, Olivier Assayas' Clouds of Sils Maria explores complicated human emotions, as well as sociological change, in a rather simplistic way. The result is a gorgeously organic and thought- provoking film that manages to thoroughly entertain, as well as inform.Juliette Binoche is a powerhouse of talent as usual, but who certainly surprises is the often understated Kristen Stewart, who, proved here, can work brilliantly with well- crafted material placed before her. The chemistry between Binoche and Stewart is simply electric, not only propelling the narrative forward, but making any potentially dull scene deliciously biting with their whip-cracking banter. It's not often that two actors so naturally play off of each other this effectively, to a point of wishing that their shared portions of the film were longer. Despite the crackling script and tantalizing character drama, there is a 20 minute epilogue that grinds the film's hefty momentum to a halt. While it is most definitely a necessary sequence for the story, it's lack of real substance is only amplified by the time it lasts on-screen. A middle-credits sequence would've left ample space for the story of the epilogue, but for whatever reason, Assayas stretched the finale of this intriguing story until it practically began to tear under the brilliance of the rest of the film.While arguably not quite as realized as Assayas' second effort with Stewart, Personal Shopper (2016), Clouds of Sils Maria is an impressively audacious study of mainstream film and celebrity status that is made rich and layered by the convicting chemistry between the film's leads. It's all so undeniably impressive, to a point where the director's shortcomings become all the more apparent, and in turn, more frustrating.

    The title refers to a town in Switzerland - Sils - where beautiful cloud formations hover and shift over the landscape. Our heroine Maria stays in the town while trying to sort out her feelings about a new play she is going to perform. She has come to the realization that she is no longer her "younger" self, and she does not quite understand who she is now. The title is a reference to the mental and emotional clouds that hover and shift over her or alternatively the "clouds" that she herself creates during her visit there. I will not repeat the entire plot here since every other review goes over that quite well. Suffice it to say that the older woman is Maria (Juliette Binoche), her young assistant is Valentine (Kristen Stewart), and a younger actress is JoAnn (Chloe Grace Morentz). Maria is cast in a play as an older woman who is seduced and manipulated by the younger actress, JoAnn. Since Maria once starred in the very same play in the younger part, she is at a loss how to approach playing the older woman. Her assistant Val tries to convince her that she can bring something special to the part, while Val also validates the talent and importance of the younger actress and her part. This is a formulation that Maria cannot, somehow, understand. Spoiler Alert:Val becomes increasingly frustrated that she cannot make Maria see the value of both the older and younger parts and she finally exits the movie in an abrupt and unexplained manner. This has given rise to many theories and I have my own. We can take the exit quite literally, but there is another level of interpretation to consider. In the story, I think that Val actually represents the "young" Maria, trying to tell her older self that she has gained something worthwhile through aging. Val has the qualities that Maria misses from her younger self - freedom, daring - but she has gained knowledge and wisdom that no longer allows her to "dare," since she has a firm understanding of who she is and what she can do. She actually has freedom she has earned in her career, and daring makes no sense when she has a complete understanding of her strengths and weaknesses. Val exits the movie when she realizes that she has done all she can do to make Maria aware of this. Maria is just not open to that understanding. Or perhaps she is, and Val is no longer necessary?At the very end of the film, as Maria is still trying to find her voice, she asks JoAnn to make one small change in her performance to extend some grace to Maria's character in the play. It is the same gesture that Maria made when she played the younger woman, to allow the older character to exit the scene with some dignity. JoAnn flatly refuses, mocking Maria. At that point, Maria should come to understand that the difference between them is not age, but of character. Val was right, Maria should not covet her youth but she should value her own character and experience. It is not clear whether Maria finally understands this, perhaps too late?This movie has so many layers that you may continue thinking about it for quite a while, or you may just give up. But it is a very useful contemplation of age, and all of the actresses give outstanding and very distinct performances.

    I ask relatively little of movies, but do expect to be entertained, informed or stimulated intellectually in a meaningful way.That said, I agree with other reviewers who consider this to be a self-indulgent film, apparently only about acting, by and for actors. Neither the plot nor the characters are compelling or even interesting. Therefore, the claimed subtlety, sophistication and excellence of the screenplay and acting are not apparent since I'm not engaged enough to care. In short, it is uninteresting, unimportant and unmemorable (Bo-ring).A movie is like a song. The music draws me in, and only then the words or message become of interest. Without appealing sound I could usually care less about possibly interesting content. Clouds of Sils Maria lacks the music.

    Ambiguity is the key world of this film. You are the major actor in the sense that your interpretation makes the film. Each scene is so ambiguous that you can always interpret it in various manners so in the end you are the director. When Maria and Val work on the text, rehearse the play, the feelings are so mingled that you are the one who decide if they are those of Helena- Sigrid or rather Maria-Val. Reality is entangled. I loved the Alps hiking shots and overall the mysterious Maloja snake. I would have rated it a 9 to the Writer-Director Olivier Assayas but reduced it to a 8 because I was disappointed in Juliette Binoche's performance. She is usually better than in this film, it is as if she didn't feel like acting this character, a bit like what happens in the film itself. At several occasions her laugh is artificial and fake. She is obviously ill at ease in this character, which proves what I wrote before about entangled reality between the film itself and the play prepared in the film. I'm not sure I am very clear but those who have seen and felt/perceived the movie as I, will understand.
