Movie Info

A man finds out how the other half lives and discovers he was better off at home in this dark comedy. To the outside world, Tomas (Frank Vercruyssen) appears to lead a charmed life -- he has a beautiful home, a good job, and a lovely wife Sara (Sara De Roo) who cares for him. But while he's good at disguising it, Tomas is deeply unsatisfied with his existence, and he often dreams of running away and starting over. One day, while browsing in a used bookstore, Tomas finds a passport with a photo of a bar in the Caribbean tucked inside. Tomas takes the passport and while running errands later the same day, he impulsively runs into a burning house to fake his death, escaping out a door in the back. Tomas flies to the Caribbean using the passport he found and takes over the bar in the snapshot, but it isn't long before he becomes disenchanted with his new life -- the tavern attracts no business, the townspeople make no secret of their dislike of him, and the village's economy is in sad shape. After five years of struggle, Tomas throws in the towel and goes back home, but he discovers Sara, a presumed widow, had married another man, Michel (Koen De Graeve) and can't bring him back into their home, though she is willing to cheat on her new husband with him. Nowhere Man received its North American premiere at the 2008 Montreal World Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
