Everything is connected: an 1849 diary of an ocean voyage across the Pacific; letters from a composer to his lover; 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.

66% Tomatometer – Review on Rotten Tomatoes ‘Its sprawling, ambitious blend of thought-provoking narrative and eye-catching visuals will prove too unwieldy for some, but the sheer size and scope of Cloud Atlas are all but impossible to ignore.’

Review by Henry Barnes – “The Guardian”:http://www.theguardian.com/film/2012/sep/09/cloud-atlas-review-toronto Sunday 9 September 2012

‘An artichoke that fires lasers; montages that span the ages; Jim Broadbent saying “ruddy”; women on conveyer belts in the nuddy; evil oil partisans; bed-hopping artisans; parasitic brain worms; Halle Berry with a perm; sex, death, love, space; cannibals, parables, war, race. Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run) and Andy and Lana Wachowski (the Matrix trilogy) are banking on there being something in that lot that catches your eye.’
