August 18, 2014
[Writer-director] Van Dormael seems unsure of what exactly it is he's trying to say, and thus Mr. Nobody rambles on for nearly two and a half hours.

There are times when the film is entirely lucid in the points it wants to get across on love and the various choices we have to make throughout our lives, while at other times it seems lost in its overabundance of possibilities.

Too clinical to have an emotional impact, not romantic enough to engage a standard audience, and not smart enough for viewers looking for an intellectual experience.

The aptly titled Nobody is just a white ball bouncing around the roulette wheel, as likely to land on this number as the next. It's fun to watch "Mr. Nobody" go round and round, but where it lands doesn't really matter to us.

'Mr. Nobody' jumps around in a rather haphazard way, so it seems too chaotic most of the time. It's creative, but quite perplexing.

Both overblown and half-baked, too long and not edited enough, Mr. Nobody describes exactly the kind of audience it will likely get.

With the film's maddening circular structure and often thudding visual expositions, the experience of watching it isn't quite as enjoyable as a description might augur.

While Mr. Nobody contains some truly moving scenes, it eventually starts to try your concentration when you suspect all the space/time continuum shuffling may never become more than the sum of its parts.
