"Cloud Atlas" Movie and Music

Okay so here is the deal on "Cloud Atlas", it is one of the most expensive independent films ever made 102 million to be exact. It is also considered a German science fiction foreign film even though almost all the actors are American. The story is unique and visually stunning it will quite literally take your breath away for so many different reasons. It is basically about a group of people who keep being reborn or reincarnated over and over or as Wiki puts it "the film features multiple plot lines set across six different eras". The six main characters are all linked and their lives keep crossing paths in every life. From back in slave trading times all the way to the future in Korea, these people always find each other. Some in tragic ways and others in happy ways the one thing that follows them all is the music. It is the kind of music you could never forget. It melts into your soul adding a balm to all past hurts. I am in love with this movie and music it really brought heart back to me lately. I encourage all of you to watch it not just once but multiple times because each time you pick up something you had not seen before. It is like watching it new every time  These are stories of humanity where the heart is trying to do good but sometimes it is just not meant to be well at least not in this life.

The official synopsis for Cloud Atlas describes the film as: "An exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution." For more on this check out the Wiki.

My favorite in this movie was Jim Sturgess. I never really notice him before this but he is dang heroic in this film and defiantly sexy. The future story in Neo Soul really will make you think outside of the box.

This I added for after you watch the film if you want to check and see who is who on the different lives and how they cross paths.
