(Cover) - EN Movies - Tom Hanks says his latest film, Cloud Atlas, is a ďpiece of artĒ.
The actor takes on six different characters in the sci-fi drama, which also stars Halle Berry and Hugh Grant.
The complex storyline required all actors to play multiple people and Tom believes the film could be a breakthrough piece of cinema.
ďThis is a unique piece of art; itís going to have a scope thatís bigger than anything Iíve ever seen,Ē he gushed.
The 56-year-old and his co-stars were put through drastic costume changes in order to portray their multiple characters.
Tom says the unique experience allowed him to try a completely different way of acting.
ďItís a type of fun that you donít get to have in movies. Selfishly, itís ridiculous amounts of fun. Professionally, itís a ridiculous amount of work!Ē he explained.
ďItís been a once in a lifetime filmmaking experience. It will always be special and Iím always going to remember the experience and everything I got from it, and all the lessons [I learned],Ē Halle added.
In order to change characters onscreen everyone spent hours in make-up, with some even using prosthetics.
Halle says the changing appearance of her colleagues caused some confusion.
ďItís been amazing, day after day, seeing the other cast members in the make-up trailer and sometimes having conversations with people and then realising two minutes in like, ĎOh my God, Hugh Grant, I had no idea that was you!í Itís like, ĎDonít I know you'íĒ she laughed.
