A young boy is standing on a station platform. The train is about to leave. Should he go with his mother or remain with his father? An infinity of lives rests on his decision. As long as doesn't choose, anything is possible. Every life deserves to be lived.

Director's Statement

Mr Nobody is a film about the complexity of things, when cinema usually tends to disentangle them. Mr Nobody is a film about life. In the movies, every scene is necessary and leads us closer to the end, whereas my life is full of holes and mishaps, of chances and useless scenes, and treads inevitably towards death. That is the beauty of it. Mr Nobody is a film about choices. Where, in a choice, is the coincidence? Mr Nobody is a film about doubt. But then again, I could be mistaken.
