The film also discusses entropy giving time its direction. In a sense Nemo has come unstuck in time and can travel backwards and forwards. Is this just in memory? Maybe so. Maybe not.
The story jumps around. A lot. If you dislike nonlinear narratives, then this movie might not be for you.
I spent a sleepless night trying to figure out the internal logic of the movie, which I suppose is a measure of its quality, that I would even bother thinking about it. Here is what I came up. I don't think this gives away anything. And it's just one person's opinion.
The movie brings together two pop science ideas: parallel universes and chaos theory. The idea of parallel universes is that every moment spawns infinitely many, nearly identical universes. The idea of chaos theory is that two systems with imperceptible initial differences can nevertheless have radically different futures. So, here's my take on the central character of the movie. If there are infinitely many, wildly divergent universes spawned at each moment, then in one of them, there must eventually be a version of you who is not only the last mortal on the planet, but who also knows what has happened in all the infinitude of other alternate universes. Why not, right? If there are infinities upon infinities of universes out there, then anything that can conceivably happen WILL in fact happen in one of them. I don't know if this interpretation is right, wrong, or sideways. But check the movie out, and spend a sleepless night trying to make your own sense of it :)
I really enjoyed this film and obviously highly recommend it. I had typed two full paragraphs more that I just deleted because I realized I was giving much to much away and because I have a limited vocabulary among other reasons, it was not at all fair nor appropriate. Enjoy this film as I did!
