  1. qw0aszx's rating of the film Floating Clouds

    4K restored DCP, the time and emotions shifting as natural as the floating clouds, as fluent as the running water.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Floating Clouds

    Une oeuvre sombre et pessimiste, d'une noirceur envoûtante... www.cinefiches.com

  3. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film Floating Clouds

    "So short is the life of a flower, yet so many hardships it suffers."

  4. DVC's rating of the film Floating Clouds

  5. Beatrice Lorenzini's rating of the film Floating Clouds

  6. V.S. Luoma-aho's rating of the film Floating Clouds

    A tough one for me, as I love Naruse, but I don't care much for the overtly melodramatic, sweeping tone and oppressive use of music. Kengo, to me, is a weak, womanizing douchebag and only Hideko Takamine saves Yukiko's clingy character some, even though she's on the brink of being too expressive. As per usual, Naruse's heavy focus is on the materialistic means of human relationships and those aspects save the film.

  8. letters never sent's rating of the film Floating Clouds

    Yukiko would have been a terribly annoying character had it been played by a different actress. However Hideko Takamine bring tenderness and depth that will make one feel such sympathy.

  9. Mark Tallo's rating of the film Floating Clouds

  10. David Grillo's rating of the film Floating Clouds

    The funny thing is appearances aren't misleading at all. Choose fate on your own terms to make it and die in the depths of your lovers heart. Or maybe you'll do better in Tokyo...

  11. CANNED LUCIDITY's rating of the film Floating Clouds

    The film's relentless pessimism is exhausting, but also exactly the point.

  12. Ma-rewind's rating of the film Floating Clouds

    Le drame amoureux dans toute sa splendeur... Une ambiance "flottante" d'amour déçu et de personnages brisés, un thème musical aussi redondant et hypnotisant que les tentatives répétées et infructueuses des protagonistes,... Une merveille dont on ne sort pas indemne (mais dont on n'aimerait pour rien au monde reproduire l'histoire!)

  13. Hyldre's rating of the film Floating Clouds

    Le temps des amours est passé, et on ne pourra jamais le retrouver. Très beau film !

  14. Olivier Serafinowicz's rating of the film Floating Clouds

    3.5. Brilliant in many ways. D'un côté, la souffrance (sociale) soutenable que sous le signe de la fatalité, et de l'autre la référence pertinente à "Bel Ami" de Maupassant dans ce contexte. Too many dimensions to be commented upon in this small space!

  15. Anne-Sophie Bruttmann's rating of the film Floating Clouds

    Le montage avec les flash back qui se superposent au présent est incroyable. On sent la chaleur de l'Indochine où naît l'amour, et le froid de Tokyo où les sentiments sont morts. J'ai cent fois préféré le film au livre....

  16. Tabikenezer von Higglesbloom's rating of the film Floating Clouds

    i hate this but its so good but im mad why do we always have to die so men get a clue

  17. Clarisse Lemaitre's rating of the film Floating Clouds

    Un cinéma tranchant qu'est celui de Naruse, le cinéma du désespoir et des rapports humains ambivalents, pourtant mis en scène de manière très classique, ce qui créé justement une rupture d'autant plus efficace entre le convenable et l'insupportable. Une douce folie s'en dégage ainsi, la vie est dure mais elle est belle "tant qu'on a de l'amour", ce qui pourrait être le mot d'ordre de ce film.

  18. azoulay's rating of the film Floating Clouds

    On est touché et porté par une histoire blessée, dans un Japon agonisant. Puissance des images, beauté absolue des acteurs, l'amour s'empêche dans les non- dit et dans les trop-tard d'une vie trop courte usée par la guerre . La belle histoire n'a plus d'issue. magnifique...

  19. João Eça's rating of the film Floating Clouds

  20. kit duckworth's rating of the film Floating Clouds

    at times felt modern in a bad way but appreciated always being dangled over satisfaction. sometimes what we call love is something else, more tangled

  21. meth_'s rating of the film Floating Clouds

    Holding on to a past version of a person to justify staying instead of starting from scratch with someone better is a VERY REAL THING

  22. Warren Spratley's rating of the film Floating Clouds

    An incredibly complex, challenging Naruse. The melodramatic sweep is so big, so tragic, that it takes some time for the viewer to settle in and properly follow the rushing current of cinematic subtleties flowing through every scene. I will be revisiting this one as soon as I can.

  23. Catarina C Gomes's rating of the film Floating Clouds

  24. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Floating Clouds

    I really dug this heartbreaking melodrama!
