The reincarnation of a soul travels through time in an exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution. Action, mystery and romance weave dramatically through the story, a time-shifting weave of six interlinking narratives, with diverse settings from the savagery of a Pacific Island in the 1850s to a dystopian Korea of the near future. Based on the best-selling novel Cloud Atlas written by David Mitchell. Featuring an all-star cast led by Halle Berry and Tom Hanks.
The reincarnation of a soul travels through time beginning with the diary of a potential slave-owner voyaging across the Pacific in 1849, then a talented composer writing letters to his lover in the Britain's 1930s, followed by a reporter investigating a corrupt case about a US nuclear power-plant in the 1970s, succeeded by a publisher's comical entrapment in a nursing home in 2012, followed by a clone's thrilling escape and rebellion in 2144's Korea, and finally a tribesman fighting cannibals in Hawaii in a post-apocalyptic world past 2300. Each story challenges the corrupt norms of the time, changing the course of history, and shaping the future through acts of kindness, big and small.
Warning! This review contains spoilersÂ… <br/><br/>What one would most certainly expect to find in a Tom Tykwer and Wachowski brothers collaboration is style. Tykwer, known notably for the stylized and stylish Run Lola Run,and the Wachowskis for the iconic Matrix trilogy, do not disappoint in that department. Cloud Atlas is nothing if not stylish. Amazing cinematography and art direction realize that style on screen. The directors use the space of the big screen to create a panoramic canvas of events and characters bound together inexorably in a larger order of things and in a way viewers of the Matrix films will identify well.<br/><br/>Like the Matrix films, where the postmodern, Baudrilardian notion of reality combines (increasingly confusingly) with ancient Eastern notions of destiny and karma as an underlying theme, strong elements of both Western and Eastern philosophy underlie and bind together the stories in Cloud Atlas.<br/><br/>The film is a collage of stories separated by space and time. It features delightful performances by the A-list of Hollywood and beyond: Tom Hanks, Jim Broadbent, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant, Hugo Weaving, Susan Sarandon, Jim Sturgess (remember Across the Universe?), Ben Whishaw (going places by also bagging the role of Q in the new Bond movie) and many others, and is an actors&#39; delight. When, for example, was the last time Hugh Grant came out of his blinking and stammering very British persona to play a cannibalistic warlord and a Japanese businessman? The film traces many lives and their stories from the 19th century to the 21st and beyond. The underlying theme is both Western and Gandhian: that every human being has the power to affect generations through their choices and actions; that every human action, no matter how seemingly trivial or small, has repercussions beyond their own surroundings and lives. Therefore, every individual has the capacity to do good or evil through their actions, which affect a host of others for the better or worse. This is evident in the way actions in each story affect those in others. There seems to be a second connection between the stories in the sense that the same actor appears as a different person in a different space and time. This is most clear in Tom Hanks&#39; stories, where he is seen wearing a talisman made from a stone that one of his characters had stolen from someone many centuries ago. Does this imply the directors&#39; belief in rebirth and karma? That one person, having harmed another at one time, is given a chance to redeem themselves? Or, once a bad apple, always a bad apple (a curse afflicting Hugo Weaving&#39;s characters)? Adapted from David Mitchell&#39;s novel of the same name (Can anybody who&#39;s read it tell me how the movie compares?), the film is ambitious, well acted and conceptualized in great detail. That&#39;s what keeps viewers from losing interest across a maze of stories whose connections appear puzzling for the better part of the three-hour running time. And just when the connections begin to be clear, the directors decide to nail the philosophy into viewers&#39; heads and become didactic. Therefore, the film becomes interesting rather than sublime in the end unlike Kubrick&#39;s 2001, made on a similarly panoramic canvas and highly philosophical, but which leaves a lot to interpretation.<br/><br/>Perhaps the directors wanted to explicitly bring together the many stories being told simultaneously because they felt viewers might be confused. Indeed, one gets a sense of too much happening, yet too little. There is not enough time to do full justice to all the stories at play: each one is a mini-movie in itself and deserves that attention. So viewers have little time to engage with the characters and the stories and have to keep flitting from one story to another, wondering all the time how they are supposed to be connected. One reviewer of this film suggested, and I agree, that this should be reworked as a miniseries to give that reel (or digital!) space to every story and character. I hope the directors are paying heed.
While &quot;Cloud Atlas&quot; is anything but a boring movie, the directors had bitten off a bit more than they were able to chew, and as such, certain perts of this grand tale became a bit too jumbled and at points it seemed like the directors just completely gave up. It was a bit too much with all the jumping around back and forth between story lines and between time periods.<br/><br/>The storyline was interesting, but it was shot in the foot by wanting to accomplish too much and becoming a bit strained and confusing along the way.<br/><br/>Visually then &quot;Cloud Atlas&quot; is spectacular and pure eye candy. The CGI was great and quite real, adding a very lifelike and believable atmosphere to the movie. And, for most parts, it was interesting to see the cast in all those different roles and characters. I say for most parts because when they turned the Caucasian cast into Koreans, it was just horrible to look at. They looked nothing like Koreans at all. They ended up looking like mutated burn victims. It was so bad to look at. And the same for turning the Asian into a Caucasian woman. It just looked too forced and unnatural. And this really kicked the movie on the shin and sent it down a notch.<br/><br/>The cast was just impressive, to say the least. They had some really talented performers in the movie, and they delivered well in each of their many roles.<br/><br/>It was a shame that the directors were tripping themselves with their over-ambitions and the God awful attempts of changing people&#39;s races, because &quot;Cloud Atlas&quot; was on the bring of being phenomenal.<br/><br/>An interesting story, aside from the horrible flaws, and &quot;Cloud Atlas&quot; is well-worth watching. Just bear in mind that it runs at about 160 minutes.
The cast comes off like a third-rate stock company on the matinee after the night on which everyone got bombed on mescal (and possibly mescaline).
Cloud Atlas is based on the 2004 multi-award winning novel by David Mitchell. It consists of six loosely interconnected stories: an 1850 diary of an ocean voyage across the Pacific; letters from a composer to his friend; a thriller about a murder at a nuclear power plant; a farce about a publisher in a nursing home; a rebellious clone in futuristic Korea; and the tale of a tribe living in post-apocalyptic Hawaii, far in the future. The author himself has indicated that the film will take the loose connections of the novel and expand them into the major theme of the film: &quot;The reincarnation motif in the book is just a hinted-at linking device, but the script gives it centre stage to link the six worlds with characters, causes and effects.&quot; The film will also feature all the principal actors playing multiple roles of different ages, sexes and races. &quot;A novel can&#39;t do multi-role acting: a film can,&quot; says Mitchell. &quot;The directors are playing to the strengths of their medium, just like I try to.&quot; The novel was shortlisted for the 2004 Booker Prize, Nebula Award, Arthur C. Clarke Award, among many others. There are three pieces: (1) &quot;Prelude: The Atlas March&quot; by Tom Tykwer, Reinhold Heil and Johnny Klimek (from the film&#39;s soundtrack); (2) &quot;Sonera&quot; by Thomas Bergersen; and (3) &quot;Outro&quot; by M83.
