Beyond the Clouds was director Michelangelo Antonionis first film in ten years and also his last. This much-anticipated comeback, assisted by Wim Wenders, did not disappoint and displayed all the hallmarks of one of cinemas greatest legends.
Adapted from Antonionis own short stories, four tales of love and desire are linked by a director in pursuit of his next project. Infatuations, infidelities, encounters unresolved and unrequited are presented with stunning imagery and feature a remarkable cast led by Sophie Marceau, Irene Jacob, Fanny Ardant, John Malkovich and Jean Reno.
Erotic and enigmatic, Beyond the Clouds is the final work of genius in the career of a true cinematic legend who became one of European cinemas most revered and respected figures.
