Enjoyable movie, very much a romp. I love Jean Paul Jeunet’s cast and writing. This is one is just fun. It’s definitely not the masterpiece of the wonderful “City of Lost Children”, “Amelie” or “A Very Long Engagement” but definitely a good time. Much smaller than those 3 classics.
I liked it. I also very much enjoyed the making of Micmacs documentary on the DVD. Was nice to see how they made scenes and the hassles of shooting in Paris. Far more interesting than the usual light interviews that really don’t say anything.
Good stuff. I like Jeunet, still need to see Alien 4. This one reminded my a lot of “Delicatessen” even though it wasn’t quite as good. It’s good to have eccentric movies with crazy characters.
