A beautiful film from start to finish, Mr. Nobody shows us how choices, many even mundane, affect our future.

...and I don't understand why. This film is gorgeously made, edited, thought out, the acting is solid, the meaning one's own... I don't know why it hasn't been shown in more countries? It will either become a cult classic or so many people will begin to talk about it that it will be shown in film history classes the world over and then it will receive the merit that it deserves. Seriously, if you want almost two-hours of the most imaginative, seamlessly interwoven, surreal narrative, this is the film to see. It's magical realism meets science fiction meets love story meets Maya Deren. Rent it, it will be worth your view.

And please, spread the word. This a gift too precious to be so unknown.

The idea of multiple universes and how each choice we make can lead to an entirely different life is something that has been brought up a number of times in the realm of science fiction. It has even made its way into movies and television, most notably seen recently in JJ Abrams' Fringe TV series Fringe: The Complete First Season(highly recommended, btw).

This movie doesn't start out simple and lead up to something complex. It plunges you right into the thick of it at the onset. A very peculiar looking doctor with a bizarre "head tattoo" interviews the elderly subject, a man who we then discover is the focus of this movie, in various incarnations. And so, we "begin" our journey into this life of his... there are moments from childhood, adolescence, and adulthood, in a somewhat general progression, but there's also some jumping back and forth. It's a bit confusing at first...

Just try to remember that you can't watch this movie and try to "understand" it all in a conventional way. You simply have to let it flow before you... just take it as it comes. It's the kind of thing where you'll have a sense of what this movie is really about towards the end of it. But "end" is kind of a misnomer here. Your traditional story has a concrete beginning and ending... this has neither. It's more of an experience than a traditional story.

I can't really say too much more about it... however, the key message that is delivered is phenomenal. At least, I found it to be. It's that although you will face tough choices in life, and be very indecisive about what choice or path to take, don't get caught up in that. Make a choice.

Absolutely breathtaking, not so much the special effects, which display every penny spent on this film, but the incredibly involving and emotional life stories of Nemo. It's a long film, so take care of any distractions and settle in, it demands close attention and involvement. I can understand, to some extent, why it wasn't a commercial success in this country, no monsters or super heroes, but the lack of critical recognition is astounding, and speaks volumes about the vacuous nature of our film industry, top to bottom. Don't miss it.

It is a mystery to me why this film has not received much attention, because it's one of the best films I have ever seen. It's a beautifully produced, intelligent film about how the choices we make, or don't make, shape our lives.

The soundtrack is perfect and injects some humor to an otherwise serious film. Jared Leto is truly excellent as the main character.

This is film making of the highest quality. If you want something deeper than the usual Hollywood fare, watch this.

The film by itself is an intriguing proposal about what if you make a decision instead another one. So, when you decide to make a decision a set of unchained events will undertake, but perhaps they are very related. Reality or existential fiction. In last instance, the destiny is the way you live.

Of course, there have been many others related films, in which "The butterfly effect" the randomness and the destiny's trickeries are extremely united. A man close to death ponders the many lives he might have led in this fantasy from director and screenwriter Jaco van Dormael. 117-year-old Nemo Nobody (Jared Leto) is ill and facing his last days as he looks back on his past and a particular crucial moment -- at the age of nine, Nemo's parents divorced, and as his mother (Natasha Little) and father (Rhys Ifans) stood on a train platform, he had to choose who he would go with, and whether he would live in the United States or Great Britain. Either choice would bring with it a wide variety of possibilities regarding the sort of life he would lead, and Nemo imagines nearly all of them, including two different wives -- sweet but emotionally blank Jeanne (Linh-Dan Pham) and lovely but troubled Elise (Sarah Polley) -- and another woman, Anna (Diane Kruger), whom he loves but can not marry. But as Nemo considers the many different paths his life could have taken, his memory begins to fail him, and he finds it increasingly difficult to be certain which was his real life and which is a product of his imagination. Mr. Nobody also stars Thomas Byrne as nine-year-old Nemo and Toby Regbo as Nemo in his teenage years.

The initial sequence is a marvelous tribute to 2001 Space Odyssey's last shots. marvelous artistic, superb edition and magnificent performance of Jared Leto make this film a winner. Don't let it pass.
