Cloud Atlas 
A powerful movie near perfection
3.5/4 stars

It is very hard to put "Cloud Atlas" into a special genre because it has multiple elements in it. Mostly Sci-Fi, but also a bit of Drama and some Comedy as well. It stars Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Ben Whishaw and some other good actors as well.
It is about some persons who ripple across time- Past, present and future. It is directed and produced by The Wachowskis and Tom Twyker (Perfume, Matrix, Run Lola Run)

At the beginning you don't know anything about the characters, they all seem just plugged into the movie, but time by time everything fits together. The script on the whole is brilliant written and very philosophical, though it lacks at some points. The actors all do a very good job, especially Ben Whishaw and TOM HANKS. Finally a splendid performance of him. The directing of Twyker/Wachowski is as usual near perfection and the cinematography is astonishing, so is the the production design and the art-direction. But the best thing of the movie was tzhe score, which was so wonderful, and the make-up. The stylist must have had a very hard job to do that you should recognize every actor but actually don't. And he succeeded...
Now looking back at the Oscars 2013 it just makes me angry how many great films were just not recognized and not awarded.
The tag-line of the movie is "Everything is connected" and so it is, if you watch very closely . Cloud Atlas is the most complicated movie I have ever seen (In my opinion even more complicated than "Memento") and one of the most underrated movie of 2012.
