Books and Movies that Connect Disparate Time Periods

I really enjoy books and films that feature narratives strewn across different time periods. I'm looking for recommendations.

Examples of the sort of thing I'm looking for are The Red Violin or Cloud Atlas.
Ideally, the story is connected across time periods by something other than family - so things connected by objects or curses or mystery or some such. I'm looking not so much for things like East of Eden or Middlesex that are sort of just multi-generational stories.
I'm interested in recommendations from any and all genres and styles.
