O que se diz lá fora sobre CLOUD ATLAS, de Tom Tykwer, Andy Wachowski e Lana Wachowski:
«It fascinates in the moment. It's getting from one moment to the next that is tricky. Surely this is one of the most ambitious films ever made.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
«As inventive narratives go, there's outside the box, and then there's pioneering another dimension entirely, and this massive, independently financed collaboration among Tom Tykwer and Wachowski siblings Lana and Andy courageously attempts the latter.»
Peter Debruge, Variety.
«CLOUD ATLAS is certainly out to be a "visionary" mindbender, but the film's secret is that it's a nimbly entertaining and light-on-its-feet Hollywood contraption, with the actors cast in multiple roles as if playing a game of dress-up.»
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly.
«Not quite soaring into the heavens, but not exactly crash-landing either, CLOUD ATLAS is an impressively mounted, emotionally stilted adaptation of British author David Mitchell's bestselling novel.»
Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter.
«Tykwer and the Wachowskis' other twist on this karmic hokum — to cast each of their actors in multiple roles across the stories, regardless of age or race — is less successful.»
Henry Barnes, The Guardian.
