Nemo is the world’s oldest man. In 2092, Mars has become a trendy vacation destination and humans have achieved immortality, thanks to advances in genetics. At the age of 120 years, Nemo is the last mortal left on Earth. His death is drawing near, and media from all over the world are eager to cover the event. Nemo doesn’t really remember who he is, and is only able, while under hypnosis, to call up a few snippets of disordered memories.

Jaco Van Dormael made his feature-length debut in 1991 with Toto le Héros, wich gained wide critical acclaim, winning both the César Award for best foreign film and the Camera d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, making Van Dormael something of an overnight celebrity.
