    "As long as you don’t choose, everything remains possible.” 118 year old Nemo Nobody is the last living mortal in a world where something called telemerization has created a population of semi-immortals . He tells of his life at three critical points: at age nine, age sixteen, and age thirty-four. This is no ordinary story however, as he tells of alternate life paths, often changing course with the flick of a decision or by some seemingly insignificant event. One path leaves Nemo married to Elise, a painfully depressed woman who never got over the unrequited love she had when she was a teenager and who asked Nemo to swear that when she died he would take her ashes to Mars. A second path leads to a passionless marriage with Jean, which proves to be a life of luxury and success but also of sheer monotony. A third life path consists of a fervid romance with his step-sister Anna. The two are left to spend their adult lives searching for each other after being separated as teenagers. Nemo 's life paths repeatedly intersect, with each woman entering an alternate life in some aspect. Are any of these lives real or are they simply delusions? Director Jaco Van Dormael uses visuals, complexity, emotional elements, and philosophical theories to produce a gripping film which stays with the viewer long after the screen has gone black. Stunning visuals hold and capture the audience 's attention throughout the film. Van Dormael uses symmetry, vibrant colors, contrast, and up-close shots to…

    Should the courts treat minors the same as adults when they are accused of serious crimes? The courts shouldn’t view the accused party’s race, gender, ethics, or age but the crime and severity. Trialing minors as adults will persuade other minors’ minds about partaking in a crime, and show how the justice system is fair. They say justice is blind. However, justice do peek once in a while. According to the website Juvenile Justice “When tried as an adult they often actually serve only a…

    It touches on the importance of confidentiality from an ethical and legal standpoint but goes on to further discuss how the process is further complicated when dealing with minors. Research by the above author found that the two leading causes of breach of confidentiality to consider when working with minors involve 1) age of client/maturity level- autonomy, and 2) seriousness of the behavior (Isaacs, 2001).

    • 4 Pages

    Introduction The bible is for connection between God and His people. God uses it to show them that He loves them, and he strongly wants to have a deep relationship with them. The whole bible is worthwhile. There are no exemptions or negligence about any parts of the bible. However, there might be a slight chance that the twelve prophets (also known as the Minor Prophets) are not treated as holy or worthy as other parts of the bible where Christians normally read a lot. For instance, There are…

    This is a very thought provoking article on the infringement notice process in Victoria. It questions not the increased use of court time for minor offences, the ever widening definition of what constitutes an ‘infringement’ and finally but significantly the growth in the use of the courts as a ‘collection agent for private industry’. It discusses the original intention of the legislation which they state as providing a “speedy and inexpensive way to process minor infringements” in preference…

    Why parents should be responsible for crimes committed by minor age children. Over the years, there has been an ongoing debate on who to blame for the crimes committed by minors. Some people say that it’s the child’s fault for doing delinquent acts but it is the parent’s responsibility to teach them in the first place before these things could happen so minors shouldn’t be blamed so easily for the lack of knowing better. It’s the parent’s responsibility to treat and guide them correctly and if…
