    Van Dormael has crafted a saga that, even at two-plus hours, is endlessly, enormously watchable.

    van Dormael’s vivid visual sense and genuine curiosity about the nature of love and life, time and death, make it well worth surrendering to his imagination for a while.

    Van Dormael's intriguing script is more than matched in his flamboyant direction of this 2-hour-plus tale, heroically edited by Matyas Veress and Susan Shipton into a fluid, generally understandable narrative.

    Though a lot of it is well written and directed and, quite often, funny or poignant, the individual scenes rarely become part of a larger whole.

    In the end, Mr. Nobody’s title is simply too apt.

    An ambitious, if uneven, experimental sci-fi romance that is less a thought-provoker than a dazzling juggling act.

    Mr. Nobody is simply a failure.

    A beautiful history combined with a marvelous cinematography and a really interesting point of view: The circumstances of life, parallel universes... The difference that different choices make in our lives. Worth watching. Expand

    Must see movie. One of the most interesting and stimulating movies I have seen in a very long time. Jared Leto is amazing. I was thinking about the movie a week later. Extremely thought provoking. Expand

    Mr Nobody is, for the record, my favourite film. Its a spiritual and philosophical journey of Nemo Nobody, a man who narrates his story to a journalist in the 22nd century as he approaches the final stage of life. His story concerns multiple lives based on the choices he makes throughout his life. It's an interesting concept, and it works extremely well; its beautifully filmed, has impressive performances (particularly from Jared Leto, who plays Nemo aged 35 and 118) and a delicate score by the director's late brother, the story whilst complex is both fascinating and thought-provoking. This is film-making at its finest. MASTERPIECE. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Best movie i have seen in a while, i don't understand how some critics can give it 25 score and score twilight higher, that just show how incompetent some critics are. This movie was brilliant, it makes you wonder about life and what we could have done with different choices in our life, it really made me cry at one point. I guess you have to be in some state of mind to really appreciate this movie, for me it was beautiful. Expand

    Very good movie with interesting (if somewhat baffling at some points) plot. Really great directing, photography and acting (pretty good SFX too). Highly recommended !! Expand

    An extremely interesting look into the act of making different decisions can change ones life.
    Seeing all the possibilities unfold is the
    driving force behind "Mr.Nobody", and the variations of character development behind Leto's character is phenomenal.
    Excellent.

    Unlike most time travel/future prophesy science fiction movies, this one does not tell you it's premise until very far into the movie(and when I say premise, an example of this is the things in Minority Report which tell the future, as this is told to the audience early in the movie). The problem with this movie, is that it interacts with the audience, presenting itself in a way which expects it's audience to know the premise.
    Telling the audience the premise(which should be constant or at least somewhat recognizable throughout) almost all the way through the movie, is not good plot development. It makes the audience feel like the whole first part of the movie was a wast of time!!
