Mr. Nobody Review

Last night, Andrew and I watched the movie Mr. Nobody and LOVED it.  A very artsy film, it delivers a compelling plot that has surprises at every turn.  The story follows the story of the last mortal on Earth. Humanity has progressed to the point where death from old age no longer exists. It is filmed in a way that makes you feel as if you are witnessing things in the same way real life plays out, making for a very real and natural watch.

Following the character, Mr. Nobody, the last mortal, you experience the decisions he makes and all their possible outcomes.  Mr. Nobody is able to know the outcomes of every decision he makes before he makes them, and is heartbroken when, as a young boy, he must choose between his mother and his father when they decide to get a divorce.  You see all of his futures for every outcome in every dimension, and the choices he faces.

This story deals with the idea of impossible decisions and how one would face them if the future was known. Mr.Nobody will leave you thinking long after the movie has ended, and makes you question your own existence.  One of the best movies I have watched in a long time, I give Mr. Nobody 5 stars!
