Storyline

In the year 2092, one hundred eighteen year old Nemo is recounting his life story to a reporter. He is less than clear, often times thinking that he is only thirty-four years of age. But his story becomes more confusing after he does focus on the fact of his current real age. He tells of his life at three primary points in his life: at age nine (when his parents divorced), age sixteen and age thirty-four. The confusing aspect of the story is that he tells of alternate life paths, often changing course with the flick of a decision at each of those ages. One life path has him ultimately married to Elise, a depressed woman who never got over the unrequited love she had for a guy named Stefano when she was a teenager and who asked Nemo to swear that when she died he would sprinkle her ashes on Mars. A second life path has him married to Jean. Their life is one of luxury but one also of utter boredom. And a third life path has him in a torrid romance with his step-sister Anna, the two who,...

Trivia

Nemo is Latin for "nobody". That name may remind people of Homer's epic; Odyssey, in which at some point, the Greek hero, Odysseus and few of his men are captured by the cyclops, Polyphemus. When asked about his name, Odysseus replies his name means 'nobody'. Later, when Odysseus and his men attempt escape, they stab the cyclops in his only eye, with a burning stake. The injured cyclops cries for help, but when his friends arrive, and ask who did this to him, Polyphemus replies: 'Nobody! Nobody stabbed me in the eye, and nobody escaped!' His friends, of course don't take his story very seriously, and leave - Odysseus and his men having successfully escaped. See more »

Goofs

When Anna's moved with her father to Brooklyn, NY, and Nemo's mother has intercepted a letter she sent to him, the return address - which usually has some amount of 'genuine-ness' to it, in this case is far from reality. It would seem the return address was written by someone who didn't even attempt to simulate a real address for Anna, as it appears it's: ' Anna Vigo 139929 9th Ave. East, Brookland, NY, New York, USA, 43052'. ZIP codes in NYC all start with a '1', with the second number being a '0' , '1', or '2' (and, yes, 'Brooklyn' is misspelt as 'Brookland'). See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Nemo Nobody adult: Like most living creatures, the pigeon quickly associates the pressing of the level with the reward. But when a timer releases a seed automatically every 20 seconds, the pigeon wonders, what did I do to deserve this? If it was flapping its wings at the time, it will continue to flap, convinced that its actions have the decisive influence on what happens. We call this "pigeon superstition".
Nemo Nobody adult: [cut to Nemo on a gurney] What did I do to deserve this?

Why are you not watching it RIGHT NOW?
17 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There's one thing about this film that makes me overlook the flaws:it's like nothing I've ever seen before. Some people walked out 20 minutes before the movie ended. I can't really explain to myself why ANYONE would do that (it was really tempting to ask but I literally couldn't take my eyes off the screen). It's really pointless to describe the plot because this movie is so much more then any summary could say. This film has so many stylistic, tonal and narrative changes that it seems absolutely mad for the first half hour. It's easily the most unique and worthy cinema experience in the last year, its feels very current. I could go on and on about the things I loved about this film but there's nothing right now that I would recommend seeing more to a person of any age, sex or taste in cinema. It's everything I could ask for in a film:funny, touching, thrilling, surreal, beautiful...
