MR. NOBODY
2009, Belga Films, 141 min, Belgium, Dir: Jaco Van Dormael

118-year-old Nemo (Jared Leto) hazily recounts the story of his life to a reporter. As the old man's memory fades in and out, he recalls a trio of formative points in his younger life: his parents' divorce; his marriage to Elise (Sarah Polley), depressed from a former lost love and determined to have her ashes sprinkled on Mars; and his later marriage to Jean (Linh Dam Pham), with whom he shared a life of cold, bored luxury. With Diane Kruger. Winner of the Biografilm and Golden Osella Awards and nominated for the Golden Lion Award at the 2009 Venice Film Festival.
