Sadly, pretty much every movie by Jean-Pierre Jeunet after his uber-successful "Amelie" seems to be rather underappreciated, and Micmacs is no different -- it certainly didn't get any wide release where I live.

In short, it's a charming
Sadly, pretty much every movie by Jean-Pierre Jeunet after his uber-successful "Amelie" seems to be rather underappreciated, and Micmacs is no different -- it certainly didn't get any wide release where I live.

In short, it's a charming story, it features Jeunet's trademark visual style, and is certainly worth watching. I don't agree with one of the previous reviewers that it is "emotionally empty", but I would go as far as calling it rather naive, which matters especially since there is some kind of moral undercurrent running throughout the movie. Then again, most mainstream movies are not particularly deep, and at least Micmacs contains great visuals and excellent acting, so I'm inclined to (almost) unconditionally recommend it.

Pretty like Amelie, but emotionally empty and heavily masculine in tone.

Jeunet's panache and flair is evident through set design and camerawork but the story feels detached in a way that doesn't reflect the risk associated with life and death situations. Jeunet's sophisticated style is let down by narrative ironicism and though enjoyable, there is only just enough comedy in here to propel the lightweight story. Obviously if you are expecting fantasy and surrealism then you won't be disappointed. It sounds like I am being harsh, but Jeunet is a master of his craft and this is not a masterpiece. 69/100 Expand

El hacedor de Amélie (2001) empieza a estancarse en el autoplagio constante y complaciente. La película nunca aburre, es cierto, pero entre el reciclaje de personajes, actores y fórmulas, y la avalanchaEl hacedor de Amélie (2001) empieza a estancarse en el autoplagio constante y complaciente. La película nunca aburre, es cierto, pero entre el reciclaje de personajes, actores y fórmulas, y la avalancha de citas/homenajes cinefílicos, sí logra exasperar a ratos. Eso sí: hay por ahí un gag silente que hubiera enorgullecido a cualesquiera de los grandes comediantes americanos de la época muda Expand
