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?

Stunning visuals hold and capture the audience 's attention throughout the film. Van Dormael uses symmetry, vibrant colors, contrast, and up-close shots to…

    Unrequited love is like a bee sting. While you are enjoying your time, in the midst of nature, channeling through the flowers and plants, seeing the beauty circling around you.

A bee sting is simple and petite yet it's nature's way of expressing how it feels about you which is how you may enjoy or love nature but it doesn't act the same.
