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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A film that has a beating heart underneath its messy -- though breathtakingly designed -- exterior.
Fresh: This big-budget English-language co-production shows that Europeans can compete in the sci-fi realm where high production values are king.
Fresh: Never mind that several characters seem to gain or lose British accents throughout the course of the film. The lack of continuity only enhances the sense of deliciously dizzying disequilibrium.
Rotten: While Mr. Nobody contains some truly moving scenes, it eventually starts to try your concentration when you suspect all the space/time continuum shuffling may never become more than the sum of its parts.
A beautifully written, filmed, directed, and acted experiment in existential "what ifs". A Benjamin Button for the very smart. Take note that it runs 2 1/2 hours so if you're not in the mood for this kind of film it might drag. It could stand a bit more editing and would have lost nothing at 2 hours or even a bit less. Jared Leto is a revelation. All in all, a pretty magnificent film for its type.
One of my all time favourite movies now!
Imaginative and visually entertaining
It's a long movie but if you enjoy stories, visually engaging cinematography then this might be for you. Pay attention, this movie demands your attention and I found it worth every minute! Beautiful and thought provoking long afterwards.
