I’ll never forget my initial reactions to Jaco Van Dormael‘s debut feature, Toto the Hero. I stumbled out of the cinema, genuinely warmed-up by what I had been watching, and wandered back to reality. Reality seemed, for a few minutes at least, rather wanting, and from that day forward I held Van Dormael’s work rather close to my heart.
Since Toto, he’s only directed one more released feature film, the romantic fantasy The Eighth Day. That one didn’t have quite the same impact upon me as his debut, but there certainly weren’t any flies on it.
Now the official website for his third film, a very wild and imaginative sci-fi fantasy called Mr. Nobody, has launched – and while as light on information as these things typically are, it does contain very many incredible images – a few of which I tucked under the fold here.
