The Pink Cloud

Iuli Gerbase
  • Not harmful / all ages

A smart, suggestive, empathic, and subtle Kammerspiel, that had some creepy foresight and asks existential questions: how obedient and resilient are we? How capable are we to accept the unacceptable?

Giovani and Yago met at a party. They spend the night together and the next day suddenly a pink cloud hangs over the city. If you are exposed to it, you would die within ten seconds. Because of the mandated quarantine, the two have to live together. Months go by and lockdown stays, so they are forced to live as a real couple to surpass their differences, while other contact with the outside world and family happens through smartphones and computer screens. Crazy how this science-fiction film is so close to our current-day reality. The director wrote the script in 2017 and made the film in 2019. Luckily, she did not make an exciting escape story, but a psychological and relational study of people and their ability to adapt. Convincingly portrayed, a camera that follows the characters close to the vest, and good use of the limited space in the apartment, with a script that is original and believable. An ambitious project that absolutely succeeded with its elegant cinematography, subtle score, and a bunch of powerful scenes. A film worth talking about. Again a strong debut of someone of whom we will see and hear a lot. Some already compare Gerbase to Michael Haneke.

Both a delicate exploration of what it means to connect in a world we no longer recognize and an unflinchingly honest look at the ways we shape our own reality, The Pink Cloud digs deeply into the underbelly of collective loneliness to offer us a way out.
