Cloud Atlas explores how the actions and consequences of individual lives impact one another throughout the past, the present and the future. Action, mystery and romance weave dramatically through the story as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and a single act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution in the distant future.

cloat001. Pacific Islands, 1849: Jim Sturgess (Mr Ewing) walks across the beach at Sa Calobra, Mallorca, in the Balearic Islands near Spain, to meet a Dr. Henry Goose (Tom Hanks).
cloat001n. Such are the skills of Lionel and Cynthia Sear that they took this shot in 2012, four years before the film appeared on our Website! (RL) (Modern Photo Added: 03-01-2017)
cloat002. Mr Ewing is seen with the mouth of a gorge made by the Torrent de Pareis (twin streams) behind him as he walks across the beach. It is also known as the Sa Calobra Canyon. Like the previous shot, it is in Mallorca, in the Balearic Islands near Spain.
cloat002n. Just to prove their skills further Lionel and Cynthia have provided this additional shot taken in 2012, from the same spot. Amazing telepathy eh? (RL) (Modern Photo Added: 03-01-2017)
cloat003. San Francisco, 1973: Luisa Rey (Halle Berry) drives across the Swannekkee Bridge. Actually it's Clackmannanshire Bridge that passes over the River forth near Kincardine in Scotland. There are some cgi changes made to the surrounding scenery.
cloat004. Cambridge/Edinburgh, 1936: Ben Wishaw (Robert Frobisher) runs across a courtyard in an apparent Cambridge location. But it's actually in Edinburgh at the City Chambers, 253 High St, EH1.
cloat005. Musician Vyvyan Ayrs (Jim Broadbent) sits in his garden. The house is actually in Scotland and is called Overtoun House in Dumbarton G82.
cloat006. The young Rufus Sixsmith (James D'Arcy) sits reading Mr Frobisher's letter on a bench in Cambridge. But in fact this location is actually in the grounds of the University of Glasgow, Scotland G12.
cloat007. Mr Frobisher steals a bike and peddles through Victoria Terrace in Edinburgh. It's just above Victoria Street EH1.
cloat008. He arrives at Vyvyan Ayrs house, the aforementioned Overtoun House in Dumbarton G82.
cloat009. An elderly Rufus Sixsmith stands with Luisa Rey and hails a cab in San Fransico in 1973. This shot was actually done in the German city of Düsseldorf outside the Dreischeibenhaus, a 95-metre office building in August-Thyssen-Straße in the Hofgarten district. Extensive computer effects, particularly on the right of the frame transformed the image into a retro San Fransico.
cloat010. And again this is a tighter shot posing as a building in 1970s San Francisco but it is really the Dreischeibenhaus building in the German city of Düsseldorf, Germany.
