My Review of Mr Nobody (2009)
Posted on May 9 2012 at 03:18:03 PM in Movies & Film
Mr Nobody is a film of truly grand ideas. Attempting to cram in as many questions about human existence as it can, as if involved in some sort of mad bet with the other films in the playground. Life, death, choice, love, fate, the nature of the universe, physics, you name it there’ll be a reference to it. Mr Nobody cannot be accused of being unambitious.
Now this is the point where it is customary to produce a quick plot synopsis; you know the drill cover main characters what happens try not to give away too much (I refer to my my blog about spoilers), isn’t that the best way of making an informed the decision, a sort of live action pros and cons list. Perhaps that’s what Nemo has done played out every decision to the absolute end, whether that’s death, happiness, a loveless marriage or whatever he knows and isn’t that all we want from life to make the best decisions for ourselves and our loved ones.
Overall I’d recommend this film purely because I commend its very existence. It may not always work, the whole space short story I could’ve done without, but watch it and then watch it again and come to your own conclusions. It's confusing in a good way not like the Box which is confusing in a crap way!
There was an alternate version of this blog in which IItake the completely opposite view point in, Nemo kind of way I weighed it up and decided against it
What did you think of the film?
