The current film explores this possibility. Different choices, of course, lead to different outcomes. Sometimes, what look like positive choices can lead to negative outcomes ~ and vice-versa. Without the ability of precognition, all of us are subject to the law of unexpected consequences as we traverse our lives.
This is a rather long-winded story and be fore-warned that it is introspective in the extreme. That's not a bad thing, but it's not for everyone. For people who are looking for a "meaning of life" film, they could do much worse than this 1. Many aspects of it reminded me of movies such as Big Fish and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. People who enjoyed the present film may also wish to check out the Swedish sci-fi movie Coherence. All of the above movies,including MR. NOBODY, are apt to bring out the philosopher in all of us!
Since I personally feel that THE 8TH DAY, his other film, was a faiure, I had low expectaion watching MR. NOBODY long time ago when this movie first was in the theater.
At that time, it was kind of confusing. It seemed more like a experimental film.
Now that the bluray is on huge sale, I bought it and watched it again.
I felt very good this time. It was more like his first film TOTO LE HERO.
It has great beautiful moments -visual moments- that definately copied on purpose from his first one.
About the story, The relationsip between the boy and his step sister is also interesting. But not as interesting as cinematography.
Above all, the visual is way absorbing then the storyline.
It is not as good as TOTO LE HERO-that movie is a masterpiece he cannot be comparable.
Please have a chance to watch this movie if you can.
But if you have to choose between this one and TOTO LE HERO, you should watch the TOTO,...
If you loved the theatrical (or you-tube) version, this one might leave you a little unsettled. The first version I saw had me seeking out the dvd immediately.
Jared Leto gives a powerful performance; and Rhys, before his amazing performance in Anonymous, shows the promise within him. One of the extras is a tour & performance piece by Rhys.
One of the deleted scenes is one I'd have put in! I just don't understand the need for Nemo peeing his pants so often & having it shoved in our faces. It somehow changes the tone of the film.
This paragraph may be a slight spoiler but on the other hand it might help in understanding the movie sooner, it is a bit confusing at first. The jumping of time and timelines (AKA dimensions) reminded me of "The Butterfly Effect" however in this movie instead of the main character traveling back in time and changing the timeline as of the point in time he jumped back to then returning to a drastically changed present, he is simply remembering all of the dimensions simultaneously while he himself seems to be in a dimension in which he did not previously exist. The jumping around in time and sometimes being confused about where in the timeline he is (or which timeline he is in), and to a lesser extent having foreknowledge of what will happen, is what reminded me of "Slaughterhouse-Five". But this movie does not have the aliens and nudity which "Slaughterhouse-Five" has.
There is a revelation at the end of the movie which puts things into prospective, but I will not give a hint of what that is.
The movie has a lot to say about love and choice and fate, but doesn't offer up easy answers. It does explain some things in the end, but not everything. That's up to you. If you are not up for that, you'd best just skip this one.
