Greetings friends of Steemit.

I watch this movie again and I don't get tired, if not on the contrary it relaxes me and makes me feel an explosion of positive and reflective sensations in my mind. We all have that "Atlas of the Clouds" very impregnated in our senses, that melody or song, or perhaps a smell, a taste, that link that transports us to a time and space, perhaps to a plane that connects many points. Extraordinary sensations, such as Deja vú, for many existing.

All this and more is what this production shows us, which although underestimated in its time, already turned into a masterpiece without exaggeration. Let's learn more about "Clouds Atlas".

"Cloud Atlas" is a German-American science fiction film, released in 2012. Directed by Tom Tykwer and the Wachowski sisters; in turn, starring a large cast of actors such as Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Hugo Weaving, Jim Sturgess, Doona Bae, Hugh Grant, Susan Sarandon, James D'Arcy, Ben Whishaw, among others. This production is based on the novel of the same name by David Mitchell.


"Clouds Atlas", is a work that goes around the world and travels from the 19th century to an apocalyptic future, through six intertwined stories. The story opens in 1850 with the return of the American notary Adam Ewing from the Chatham Islands to his native California. During the trip, Ewing befriends a doctor, Dr. Goose, who begins to treat him for a strange disease caused by a brain parasite.

Suddenly the action shifts to 1931 in Belgium, where Robert Frobisher, a disinherited bisexual songwriter, is introduced to the home of a sick artist, his seductive wife, and their nubile daughter.Then we jump to the West Coast in the decade of the seventies, when Luisa Rey uncovers a network of greed and crime that endangers her life. And, in the same way, with equal mastery, we traveled to the ignominious England of our days, until later jumping into the future apocalyptic and post apocalyptic. Each story with an ending, for better or for worse.

It is incredible, how this work has gone very unnoticed by the film world, even with a large cast of actors. However, today it has earned its reputation by hand over the years, since in the cinema it did not have much reception, only raising 30 billion of the invested profit.

Talking about a particular performance becomes very difficult, in particular what characterized this great staf of actors, it is a very curious fact about the film; It was that each actor played different roles in the different times that they pose us, developing an analogy with the connection of the characters of the past, present and future, even a reincarnation could even be hinted at.

A general plot, from which subplots emerge, with different endings for each era. And the cherry on the cake, to complete all this genius, and cause us a sensory orgasm with its soundtrack, especially that main rhythm that becomes the main protagonist of this entire work, called "Clouds Atlas " produced by Tom Twyker and his inseparable Johnny Klimek and Reinhold Heil.

Life, death, freedom, love; the past, present and future, all is one. We will see a vision of our lives tied to next lives, different lives, and perhaps other worlds. It is not necessary to understand this work, just feel it.

Finally, I recommend this masterful work, I think, although complicated and long it has become a cult work. I do not know if I exaggerate in the qualifications that I impose on it, so I hope you see it, and I want to know your opinions; without more I say goodbye.

Greetings and thanks for the support.
