2012 | Lana and Andy Wachowski and Tom Tykwer
Cloud Atlas is a German film based on a novel written by British author David Mitchell, it consists of six nested stories ranging from the past to the post-apocalyptic future.
The film tells six stories in nonlinear narrative which is quite interesting. The make-up and art direction is incredibly superb, in fact, for me it is the best thing in the film. However the film is unable to deliver the climax, everything seems to be flowing from the beginning to the end without any surprises.
Cloud Atlas is definitely a feast for the eye to watch, but it does not move me like Perfume or Matrix. May be I expect far too much from Tom Tykwer.
