Cloud Atlas- A Flowchart

Often, when I come across a flowchart-worthy book or film, I chart it so others can see and appreciate the connections. When I decided to chart the film 'Cloud Atlas' it was so I could try and understand it!!

This film is a complicated, beautiful, confusing piece of art. The interconnectedness flows not just through the characters and narrative, but through to the actual actors playing multiple roles- often of differing gender or race. Such an interesting film. I still can't say I understood it completely, or that this is a definitive explanation of ANYTHING, but I definitely enjoyed creating this. 

Have you seen Cloud Atlas? What did you think?

*And, I know this was an acclaimed, much loved book first, which I have on my Kindle app, but haven't read yet... This is a flowchart of the film :-)

  1. At least you know who I am and not an anonymous commentor !!
    WOW - I don't know how you managed to unravel that lot - I haven't seen the movie but I am betting that I would need to print this out and keep it handy should I ever wish to watch it !
    Have the best day - can't wait to catch up on Saturday !

  2. I just watched the film and was slightly confused. I am a visual person and what visual aid would help me understand this film? I said to myself "self, I bet if I google 'flowchart cloud atlas,' I would find something to help me put together the pieces of this body of work. And what do you know??? Thank you!

  3. This makes me furiously happy! I'm glad I could help you :-)

  6. Not all are true. Everyone has their own way of thinking but I think they have to reconsider. I like to argue for the most accurate results.
