Mr. Nobody

Directed by Jaco van Dormael
Canada, Germany, 2009
Drama, Fantasy, Romance

Synopsis

A young boy is standing on a station platform. The train is about to leave. Should he go with his mother or remain with his father? An infinity of lives rests on his decision. As long as doesn’t choose, anything is possible. Every life deserves to be lived.

Our take

The many shards of memory are re-sparked in this fantastical, unreliable telling of the varying pathways of one man’s life. With soulful performances from Jared Leto, Sarah Polley, and Diane Kruger, Mr. Nobody is a powerful science fiction rumination on the decisive moments that compose a lifetime.
