Jude Law has revealed that he was drawn to his new movie 360 because of its multicultural and multilingual aspect.
The British star plays Michael Daly, a businessman in a hollow marriage, who the audience first encounter when he's waiting to meet an escort. His decision to remain faithful to his wife sparks a series of events which ripple around the globe via Paris, London, Bratislava, Rio, Denver and Phoenix, before eventually returning, 360 degrees, to where the chain began.
Jude, 39, who co-stars with Rachel Weisz, said: "I was excited about being in something with multiple languages, and it's very much about humans being humans and trying to do the right thing.
"Yet it's in all these different languages, and I got to meet all these wonderful actors from around the world."
He added: "Something Fernando [Meirelles, the director] said to me before I started, which really warmed me to this project, was that everyone in it is trying to do the right thing.
"Michael is a normal, regular, flawed human being. There's nothing particularly special or spectacular about him. He's just a regular Joe. He's working hard but at the same time kind of missing his life. He wants to do right by his family and do right by himself."
:: 360 is released in cinemas on Friday, August 10.
