Unable to decide, he chooses both and takes us for a ride through an immensity of possible. And for the ending, what I guess some people would consider a twist, I saw as just plain stupid if you think deeply into what it suggested. Exceptionally imaginative, acutely funny and startling, this production reeks of intelligence and craftsmanship, breaks down linear storytelling into bits, only to shuffle the whole thing in a brilliantly orchestrated masterpiece. A second life path has him married to Jean. I will go and see it again however. Mr Nobody, Nemo Nobody, is now 100 years old, the last mortal on earth in 2092, and he is about to die. I was so bored by this movie that I nearly panicked, and I wanted to leave the cinema, and the only reason I stayed was that my friend I was seeing it with wanted to see it through though she was pretty bored too but she still had the hope of something meaningful at the end.
After watching it in all of its two hour and thirty minute glory, I now feel an inane displeasure, akin to what I can only assume as having my frontal lobe stabbed with an ice pick. A second life path has him married to Jean. With Rhys Ifans in it every now and again. It's everything I could ask for in a film:funny, touching, thrilling, surreal, beautiful. The confusing aspect of the story is that he tells of alternate life paths, often changing course with the flick of a decision at each of those ages.
The whole movie is random. Chaos theory and butterfly effect to remind us how small we are in the randomness of the universe and yet so able to actively manifest the reality we desire. I could go on and on about the things I loved about this film but there's nothing right now that I would recommend seeing more to a person of any age, sex or taste in cinema. It does not make you think. Well done to all involved in providing something original, intelligent and very entertaining.
It is one of the worst movies I have ever forced myself to watch.

Im amazed that they still make this kinds of demanding visual movies for cinema. Those that gave the movie a good rating are art lovers of the second type. I realise that this film will not be to everyones taste, certainly I think it will not be fully comprehended by the younger generation as it does require a certain lifetime of experiences to relate, such as birth, love, marriage, children, separation, divorce, death, life changing choices etc. Nobody kickass with english subtitles, Mr.
I'm even considering buying the soundtrack. Just put dramatic scenes in there and you win the audience. Nobody is one of those movies with main plot transcending reality. In practice, it means that this is a very non-linear experience in terms of time and space, real and imaginary, showing you results of important choices either way. I have just finished watching Mr Nobody after knowing nothing about the movie beforehand perhaps a good thing as I may have avoided it otherwise , but was simply astonished by the originality, cinematography, acting, script, soundtrack and profoundly thought provoking ideas. They really make you think! The only reason the film gets an 8 and not a higher score is because towards the end it seemed to go on a bit.
It is not for everyone, but I loved it. He tells of his life at three primary points in his life: at age nine when his parents divorced , age sixteen and age thirty-four. It's filmed in English but the fact that it had a French director probably accounts for the style. This script makes no sense. This movie will not appeal to everyone - because the concept is very complex and the content is very intellectual. I was totally captivated from start to finish.
There are those who love art because of the way it makes them feel. I realise that this film will not be to everyones taste, certainly I think it will not be fully comprehended by the younger generation as it does require a certain lifetime of experiences to relate, such as birth, love, marriage, children, separation, divorce, death, life changing choices etc. It's about choices, destinies, astrophysics, dreams and memories, just to name a few themes. Some people will not even understand a little bit of it because it requires the viewer to apply his or her mind to understanding how it all interlinks. Synopsis In the year 2092, one hundred eighteen year old Nemo is recounting his life story to a reporter. I was in Flanders and so the film wasn't dubbed. One could easily cut out many of the scenes without losing much of the meaning of this movie, because there is not much meaning to lose.
The alternate realities that Nemo experienced, while varied, did not justify the huge expenditure of time devoted them, nor did I feel like they moved the movie along in any significant way. I usually like these kinds of movies. The art can be disturbing, but the emotion it envokes might still be a good one, such as overcoming a personal fear. The filming is smooth and sequences linked in a flow of event that jumps back and forth through time, brilliantly edited with great attention for rhythm. I dare to say this is the very best movie of 2009 and will most likely go see it a second time next week, one can never get enough of these absolutely mind blowing experiences. Nobody and it has become one of my new favorite films.
