I love scifi movies and movies with some lovestory that is BIGGER THAN LIFE and what else is bigger than love beyond time or even.. death?
If you love these movies too, here are mind challenging, intriguing, fascinating and of course, so very romantic stories, some more than others though..
Let’s start with 80’s movie (a great scifi, fantasy and what ever category movie year)
LouieJeffries is happily married to Corinne. On their first anniversary, Louie is killed crossing the road. Louie is reincarnated as Alex Finch, and twenty years later, fate brings Alex and Louie’s daughter, Miranda, together.
Then off to a 90’s film (1998 by the way, just switching the numbers 8 and 9 here… )
After dying in a car crash a widowed man searches the afterlife for his wife.
I think this is very spiritual and I’ve read about people beeing in this kind of place in the hypnosis, where they can go to life before this life, in the between.
A lonely landscape architect (Ruffalo) falls for the spirit of beautiful woman (Witherspoon) who used to live in his new apartment.
and more of timetravel and future love and love after..
A romantic drama about a Chicago librarian with a gene that causes him to involuntarily time travel, and the complications it creates for his marriage.
Now then there is a movie I loved as I started to realize what the story is about really.
An exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution.
Here is a comment in the IMDB that explains Cloud Atlas movie better than I could (but I understood this so while watching this movie):
READ THIS so you’ll understand this masterpiece: “Cloud Atlas is structured like a Russian nesting doll, with six interconnected narratives – spanning from the 1800’s through the 1930’s, the 1970’s, the present 2012, the future 2144 of Seoul, and after the fall of the civilization in 2321, that invert and converge like a palindrome. Each story is so unique with its own rising action/climax/conclusion, yet they all connect through different themes.
These six stories have amazing connections that appear to be individually based, but grow in momentum to form one giant philosophical idea. Cloud Atlas explores the idea of an eternal soul that reincarnates through time and space in different parts of the world – no matter of race and gender – but based on the past actions, reborn and rejoins with lost loves, and remedy wrongs from the past. Everything is connected in Cloud Atlas, every line and detail – in one way or another. It’s an exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future.
People worry that the movie is confusing. It’s not if you just get the concept: the same actor playing one soul in multiple parts, in different time periods. Because the concept is that what you do in a past life, is connected to consequences that might happen in your future life. (Many people who have seen the film didn’t know the actors played multiple parts. That’s definitely a proof of outstanding, brilliant makeup!)
When you know all characters the same actor is playing, it will be easier to understand why the soul has been reincarnated into this person. It’s not race-mixing, transsexual for fun. There’s an important reason. The more times you see Cloud Atlas the more details and hidden messages you’ll notice/discover and realize how all the stories and everything are connected to each other.
But I would also say it’s a brainy movie for already open-minded human beings with a heart and some kind of depth in their bodies. It’s definitely nothing for dumb, ignorant, narrow-minded people who can’t think for themselves. It’s a rare, unique, epic, beautiful, piece of art – in which you must be able to pay attention to details. The others better be sure to get the next Fast and Furious or Transformers movie, or just stick to their Twilight collection.
Cloud Atlas is a movie that lets you reflect about your own actions, life, existence. It is an epic story of humankind in which the actions and consequences of our lives impact one another – throughout the past, present and future.”
Thank you to cloudatlasfans who wrote this, it can be useful to some people. This is really a movie to be seen many times to understand it better every time.
