Mr. Nobody

Tonight I watched a movie I intended to watch for a little while now. A friend from work gave it to me and said it was really good. as she has good taste and loves movies, I trusted her opinon.

I have never hear about MR NOBODY before as it never hit the cinemas in Brazil. I have a great discovery. The funny is intriguing, the plot is well developed. It is wierd and non-sens for a while and, by the time you pick it up, you can not stop thinking about your own life and choices.

The movie shows possible lives of Mr Nobody based on possible life choices he makes or is is put in to. The film message is that we cant go back, thats why it is hard to choose. So, you´ve got to make the right choice. As long as you don't choose, everything remains possible. But each of these lives is the right one! Every path is the right path. Everything could have been everything else and it will have just as much meaning.

A good passage from the movie is the following phrase said by Nemo: I am not afraid to die. I am afraid I havent been alive enough.

You can see all quotes form the movie here!

Check the movie trailler here!

Description: Nemo Nobody leads an ordinary existence at his wife's side, Elise, and their 3 children, until the day when reality skids and he wakes up as an old man in the year 2092. At 120, Mr. Nobody is both the oldest man in the world and the last mortal of a new mankind where nobody dies anymore. But that doesn't seem to interest or bother him very much. The only questions that preoccupy him in the present is whether he lived the right life for himself, loved the woman whom he was supposed to love, and had the children whom he was meant to have... now his purpose is to find the right answer.

It is worth watching it. It makes you rethink your choices and your life path...
Its never too late to WAKE UP.


  1. Finnally! I knew you would love this movie! I'm glad you like it.

  2. I thought the end was very evasive. After getting involved with all those views and those alleged parallel lives arising from their likely choices, I realized an outcome somewhat empty. It seems that we are moving in the maze of destinations to which the protagonist himself, the end of everything, told ya "is up to you, believe what you want." Like Donnie Darko, I think the film pretentious and provocative in this regard. And like that, so does being a work that only offers us theories and nothing else!
