Cloud Atlas


This is such a confusing movie where I initially think it’s annoying with several parallel stories. In the middle, I have understood that they are connected, but do not understand yet. Towards the end, I am very tired (because it is 3 hours long) but still cures and looks clear. Not so good grades already here you can think. But it’s something special that binds me and forces me to see clearly.

There are 6 stories each of which takes place in different epochs. Then -1849 where a lawyer helps the slave to fly. 1936 with a young composer. 1973 – A journalist trying to expose the danger of a nuclear plant in San Francisco. Nowadays – An editor who has been invalidated by an elderly resident tries to escape from there. The 2144-cloned slave seeks the meaning of society and life. Finally, an era after humanity’s demise – where the last one tries to send an emergency signal to a civilized planet.

Everything is interconnected. We are all linked in one way or another. We affect those who are not yet born and those who are already dead. Thus the butterfly effect.

Aside from the fact that the film is a bit long and boring in some places, it is both fun and bloody on others. All stories are so different that I have to care about everyone as much in the end. But unfortunately, the word love I can not link here. There’s nothing I’ll think of as “wow any movie” in the future. Most likely, I will forget it completely, but it has certainly affected me and my grandchildren in one way or another.
