Mr. Nobody is set in 2092. 118 years old Nemo is recalling his past life (and alternate life paths) at age nine, sixteen and thirty-four. Infinite possibilities arise from various decisions and anything is possible.

Beyond the philosophical and sci-fi themes of this 2009 film, that we could even go without, the study of Belgian director Jaco van Dormael on teen love is rarely as beautiful in movies. His ways are unusually charming and images beautifully crafted. The respectful view on love at 15 is what makes Mr. Nobody a real rarity in the medium of cinema and a real film about Love.
As simple as that.
