For another piece that interests me this week I watched the film Mr Nobody.

In this a character known as Mr Nobody aka Nemo. is the last human being that is dieing naturally. He talks about his life from when he was young from before he was born to the time of which he is meant to die. While at the same time the main character played by Jared Leto lives a life split in three where he has a relationship and marries three girls, that are neighbors of whom had a crush on him when they were young. Too this point the colour is over saturated and has a child like look to it but as he gets older this changes. When his mother and father split, he leaves on the train with his mum and lives with his dad turning the imagery to a raw outlook of the world. Living with his mum he falls in love with the one girl bringing soft colours, staying with his dad he gets with another girl but as she won’t dance with him he marries the third girl when he’s older. Bringing into question what path does he take? With repetition of the train tracks that are laid on top of each other, swimming and only Jared Leto’s character the types of life switch. This is made interesting from the use of the repetition in each life so to keep a familiarity, the amount of questions he asks throughout his life and how this turns to a science lesson at points. Plus the spin that is placed on the narrative, at the end so to throw a curve ball in the story giving an original outlook to a typical storyline. Although the story is fictional and has many happenings it is clear to follow and raises many questions not just about the film but also about the viewers life. All based around what route do you take in life?
