Jaco Van Dormael's Mr. Nobody is utterly ridicilous and unbearably annoying experience to sit through. It is a perfect example of a film that tries to be something visually special, philosophical and one of of a kind but in the end it is nothing but a bunch of nonsense and piece ...

A drop of rain falls on a piece of paper and smudges the phone number (belonging to a girl named Anna) written on it. The number gets erased and so does any trace of Anna. The narrator of the story, Nemo Nobody, aged 118 explains to the journalist interviewing him, "...

In the late 21st century the last man who will die of old age thinks back on his life and the different paths it could have taken in this mix of arthouse drama, romance and science fiction. The film's problem soon becomes apparent: the audience remains as uncertain and confused a...

If you are looking for a movie that has an ending, don't look here. If you are prepared to watch a movie that can change the way you look at life, then come right in.
