Mr. Nobody - Opens July 16 in Toronto, Montreal

A young boy stands on a station platform. The train is about to leave. Should he go with his mother or stay with his father? An infinity of possibilities rise from this decision. As long as he doesn't choose, anything is possible.

Every life deserves to be lived.

So says the PR info for this film. I haven't seen it myself, but it does sound interesting - opens in Canada this Friday.

The present day, more or less. Nemo is 35 years old, married to Elise, with two children. An ordinary man.
But life¹s turning strange: billboards flash messages addressed only to him; on the streets, he passes strangers with his face; behind the facade of a half-constructed building, he sees helicopters lifting enormous blocks of the ocean... Nemo wakes to find himself trapped in his car, drowning. He wakes again, and dies again. And wakes again... by a swimming pool in the grounds of an opulent mansion. With a new wife and new children, whom he does not recognize. Another dream?

It¹s the year 2092. Mars is the number one holiday destination; genetic advances have rendered natural death obsolete. In hospital, as the world's media looks eagerly on, an old man is dying. The last mortal on earth, he is 120 years old. He doesn¹t know it, but his name is Nemo. His memory has gone, wiped clean by age. But slowly, under hypnosis, fragments of the past begin to emerge.

As Old Nemo recalls his pasts, an infinity of lives is revealed - he has been a thousand men, and no one. He has lived a thousand lives, and none at all. "Everything could have been anything else and it would have just as much meaning", he tells a young journalist. "We live in the imagination of a seven-year-old child who is faced with an impossible choice".

A Pan- Européenne production, co-produced with Integral Film, Alfred Hürmer – LagoFilm, Marco Mehlitz – Christal Films Productions, Christian Larouche – Toto & Co films, Jaco Van Dormael

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
