For me Jean-Pierre Jeunet's films are events. He's such an original and visionary director and I always anticipate his films with bated breath. His latest film is "Micmacs à tire-larigot" (Micmacs) and its a throwback to the aesthetic of his first two films; Delicatessen and City Of Lost Children. It tells the story of Bazil who's father is killed by a land mine in the middle east and 30 years later Bazil himself ends up with a bullet lodged in his brain when he is shot in the head. Finding himself jobless and homeless he is taken in by a group of eccentric dwellers who sift through scrap heaps for a living. Bazil hatches a scheme to exact revenge on the weapons dealer & manufacturers who are the reason for his woes. The film is full of crazy and bizarre scenarios, incredibly creative creations and old fashioned comical performances. If you like Jeanet's work the you'll love Micmacs. High entertainment.
