    A punky, futuristic effort by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro, it is a tasteless variation on "Sweeney Todd" set geographically near the border of Terry Gilliam's "Brazil."
  2. There are no characters to care about or remember afterward - just a lot of flashy technique involving decor, some glib allegorical flourishes, and the obligatory studied film-school weirdness.

    Quirky French comedy/thriller (if you can call it that) with some great characters & all round weirdness.
    The film is almost shot entirely
    with a sepia tint which ads to the claustrophobia of it all. Also a mention for the brilliant music by Carlos D'Alessio. Full Review »

    One of the most unique post-apocalyptic movie you will ever seen. Totally surreal and I loved every moment of it. Definitely recommended if you are interested in the genre, or in unorthodox french cinema. Full Review »
