Movie Review: Mr. Nobody

Rating: 4

If you like abstract movies that will make you think, here’s the movie for you: Mr. Nobody. We bet that more people will be watching this now because of Jared Leto. He’s been around for quite sometime but he was not getting the attention he is worth getting. Now, that he is the “joker”, like him or not, he is making a huge hit. For me and my buddy, he is a great actor slash singer as well. We’ve recently researched about him and found out that he is the lead vocalist of 30 Seconds To Mars. He is a talented fella. Okay, let’s stop talking about Jared and go straight to the movie itself. Mr. Nobody tells a story of a young boy named Nemo who can foresee the future and the consequences of his choices. The story also shows how the choices of others affects our choices and destiny.

 

Why We Love It?

It Makes You Ask Questions

We wonder why this movie is unappreciated by movie critics when the movie will surely can keep you engaged and curious for 2 hours. We rated it 4 and not 5 because there are some parts of the movie we can’t understand. we are not sure if we just didn’t pay attention or the director wanted it that way. We are so certain that you’ll have questions as well.

It Teaches A Great Power That Shapes Our Destiny: Choice

According to Nemo, babies can remember everything everything that the future beholds for them but after conception, they forget everything because  of the Angel of Oblivion. The Angel of Oblivion’s task was to remove all these memories so children can have a fresh start but it forgotten about Nemo. He explains that this is the reason why he could remember everything including the choices he made and their consequences. Nemo finds himself choosing between his mother and father (we don’t want to spoil the story, please help us). Due to his ability to see the future, he saw everything that will happen if he chose one of them. Every choices he made brought him to a place of regret and longing for someone he love.

Love Can Wait

Mr. Nobody surrounds on the story of a long lost love. Nemo wants to be with only one woman and for some reason, destiny is making a way to separate them. But Nemo’s love is too strong that he disregard destiny’s decision and created all the possibilities to be with the girl of his dreams.

Striking Lines

“ Every path is the right path. Everything could’ve been anything else. And it would have just as much meaning.”

“If you mix the mashed potatoes and sauce, you can’t separate them later. It’s forever. The smoke comes out of Daddy’s cigarette, but it never goes back in. We cannot go back. That’s why it’s hard to choose. You have to make the right choice. As long as you don’t choose, everything remains possible.”
