Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant

Genre:
Drama, Science Fiction

"The film adaption of the bestseller "The Cloud Atlas", written by David Mitchell, is a monstrosity. The Wachowskis (Matrix) and Tom Tykwer (Lola runs) put this epos into a pictorial fortress which waits to be seen. Six different stories from different epochs and differing worlds try to answer questions of fear, love and believe. Why do we make the same mistakes over and over again? Spectacular, moving and virtuoso."
