The Wachowskis and Run Lola Run director Tom Tywker have endeavoured on an ambitous feat with Cloud Atlas. Their first six-minute long trailer was clear evidence of that. Six stories interconnected, past, present and future meld by, what I gather, memory. Whether this is an embedded memory passed through generations in our DNA or an artificial memory passed through the words in a book I don’t know but it is certainly something to watch.
Based on David Mitchell’s 2004 novel the book’s six stories are meant to blend seemlessly into a single, continuous narrative with each actor portraying multiple roles to underline the theme of connectivity.
