Cloud Atlas Explained


A new movie came out recently called “The Cloud Atlas” based upon a book of the same name by David Mitchell. Both the book and movie feature a complex plot and multiple characters. The infographic below will summarize the main plot points and characters for you. I especially like how it establishes the archetypes described in the book by labeling them on the picture. Also, the picture of the main protagonist of each story line is bigger than the pictures of fellow characters. This technique is nicely used to further the idea of karma and progression because each following story line advances these ideas.
