Jaco Van Dormael brings us the very deep and thought out story about the last mortal human. In 2092, the world is very advanced with artificial mortality. Nemo Nobody, played by Jared Leto, is the last mortal human and is 118 years old. Yes, his name is Nemo Nobody, it's not about a nobody, technically it is about a Nobody...you get the point. Anyway, he is interviewed about his long life.
The movie starts out with old Nemo in the advanced world, and it seems like he doesn't know how he got there. He is interviewed about his life and he thinks all the way back to his childhood. When his parents divorced, he told the story of him staying with his dad, and then of his mom. He tells the story of the women he married, the jobs he had, the places he went.
He asks the questions: What if I never made the mistakes I made? What if I was the sperm that died? What if my parents never met in the first place? What would my life be like, what could've changed?
This is a very deep and trippy movie. When you watch this, you could hear questions that you never thought about, then you will relate to them and think, "Wait, it's just a movie."
Then, the people of the future takes a vote of if they should give Nemo artificial life, or let him die naturally. You could probably guess what they vote for, just pretend that you're surprised.
The depth this movie goes is very impressive. If you couldn't tell already, it's a movie about questions and the lives Nemo could've led. Very well done and thought out. Those are some of the greatest movies.
Highly recommended to anyone who wants their mind blown.
