Also, while Hugo Weaving represents the enforcement of an evil order in every story, Hugh Grant is always the very source f that order.

This is one of my favorites ever, and my favorites in a long time.

I loved this film so much when I saw it in theaters, I immediately bought the book. I haven't gotten around to reading it yet, but it's high on my list. I really should watch this film again, too.

Re: 'Cloud Atlas' (2012) Wachowski Brothers rumors/info until release

I watched it it on the opening night and got the blu ray for my birthday. After it was sitting on my shelf for several months, I managed to re-watch the movie again a couple of weeks ago. It's certainly one of my favourite ones. And I'm amazed by all the details that I didn't noticed when I watched "Cloud Atlas" the first time.

I'm thinking about reading the book, too, but I haven't made up my mind yet.

There was one thing I found a little confusing. The birthmark was appearing on different actors in the different eras, but I was originally under the impression that the actors were all supposed to be different incarnations of the same soul. Was that not the case? Were they cast more on the concept they represented rather than being the same "person"?

No. The same actors are not playing the same "soul." In fact, the birthmark follows the one common soul. the same actors do as you said earlier, which to represent their roles in the story, not the actual characters. Cloud Atlas is as much about stories, the telling of stories, and the roles that antagonists and protagonists play in it, and that's what the actors represent. The only common soul is the whoever wears the comet birthmark, which is the main character in each story.
Ewing - Forbisher - Rey - Cavendesh - Somni451 - Zacharay

They all have the birthmark and are the same character.

Hugo Weaving and Hugh Grant play antagonists in every story, but they are not playing the same souls.

Ok, thanks of the explanation.
