Based on these clips from the fantasy romance “Mr. Nobody,” the tagline “Nothing is real, everything is possible” seems particularly fitting.
The off-the-wall, fantastical tale centers on Nemo Nobody (Jared Leto), a man who wakes up one day only to discover the year has jumped to 2092 and he is now nearly 120 years old. He’s the oldest man alive and the only remaining mortal, for in 2092 humans never die.
As a group of men in this futuristic society attempt to get Nemo to remember his past, Nemo relates several contradictory tales. When his parents separate, in one reality he leaves with his mother while in another he stays with his father. In three different realities, he marries each of the three women in his life (Diane Kruger, Sarah Polley and Linh-Dam Pham). He wonders if he made the right choices in his life, and as he is on his deathbed, fears he hasn’t lived enough.
It’s difficult to categorize “Mr. Nobody,” especially if in addition to the clips below you watch the full trailer, which shows more of the 2092 society. It certainly seems like a whimsical tale, but with its convoluted storylines and many realities, “Mr. Nobody” could either turn out to be quite moving or hard to follow.
“Mr. Nobody” debuted in North America at the Toronto International Film Festival last September. No U.S. release date has been set.
Check out four clips from the film below.
