Look at the clock in both the scenes, it'll lead to the answer. Nemo passes through the pathway everyday at 9:10 Anna passes through the pathway everyday at 9:20 That's why they never meet (Although they feel the presence of each other in some way). Now the death of that beggar makes nemo to stay in the pathway till 9:20, anna passes through the pathway ...

The thing is that we don't know what happened after he left both parents. Perhaps he reunited with his parents years later and met Anna during a visit. Perhaps he met her in a totally unrelated event, like he did in the spaceship. The details don't really matter, and the movie, wisely, doesn't dwell on them. The theme of the movie, choice and consequence, is ...

There is a seeming all-knowing quality to 118 year old Nemo, isn't there? How does he know that his own choice of pants to purchase cost a Brazilian his job and caused the very rain that erased Anna's numbers? It is not the only time that this knowledge-beyond-normal-knowing of what caused things to be the way they are, or rather could be (all Butterfly ...

The Worldwide box office was $2.33M on a budget of $47M. I'd say, considering the movie is somewhat obscure, it will most likely never recoup its expenditures even after home video sales/TV broadcast rights are taken into account. You can "buy" it from IMDB for $2.99, but that's gonna take a lot of sales to recover the $44+M difference between budget and ...

Essentially, using the same techiniques as described for Contact. The Shot: In one scene, Jared Leto's character approaches a mirror, and the camera zooms in. He then walks away from the mirror and the camera follows him through the glass on the other side. How They Did It: What looks like one shot is actually two. The first shot is of Leto crossing the ...

The Butterfly Effect is a metaphor for a real scientific phenomenon. There are many really systems like weather, the Kepler problem in planetary movement, etc, where a tiny change at the beginning can lead to an enormous effect later on. In Mr. Nobody, one tiny initial change is that Nemo's father forgets to set the handbrake. This causes ever larger ...

All the possibilities were the attempts to find the correct decision to his impossible choice, following each choice to its conclusion. They were figments in the mind of the 9-year-old Nemo at the train station. Eventually he takes a third option, to make neither of two choices towards an unknown future. Consequently, his life simplifies itself, and as ...

Why is this non-linear narration? Spoilers alert As the protagonist name goes by Nemo Nobody, we're talking about nobody in the film. Nobody we see on screen exists in Nobody's life-yet. Infact there was a particular scene(few minutes before the climax) when 118 year old Nemo says In chess, there is a move called Zugzwang ...when the only viable move ...

Ok I have a separate theory that is a bit different from the others I have read online. My problem with most interpretations is that they leave out Nemo’s ability to see the future (at least to a limited extent) and the importance of the big crunch event in the end. In my theory, these two circumstances creates a paradox, and in turn a very situational ...

The following analysis is based off my opinion and personal interpretation, therefore may be pictured differently by other people. Also spoilers will follow, duh. Mr nobody isn’t about any particular person. In fact it is about nobody. It simply is about the impossibility of choice that we have to make throughout our lives based completely off our ...

The older version does not exist he is a projection of a projection of the only path that survived to be that age in this life.
