The creators of The Matrix team up with Run Lola Run helmer Tom Twyker for this massive, ambitious stab at bringing "David Mitchell's unfilmable novel"™ to the big screen. A megacast including Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant, Hugo Weaving and Jim Broadbent cross characters, race, and gender in a sprawling six story six century epic, from the 19th century slave trade to the far flung post-apocalyptic future. You need to pay attention to the criss-cross, flash back 'n' forth 'n' back again plot, but for those willing to take the journey - and witness their favourite actors in a variety of wigs and false noses - there are wondrous sights to behold on the way up the mountain.
