An enjoyable Adult fairytale.This is a movie made by someone who obviously loves cinema and its history; it's full of references to silent movies, that I guess most audiences will not even notice. MICMACS is aimed at a wide audience, and with dialogue kept to a minimum even people who don't "do" subtitled movies might enjoy that one.
As usual Jeunet's fantastic universe is kooky and filled with larger than life character ... some may say it's not believable ... to them I say : is Cinderella believable? is Little Red Riding Hood believable? Am sure you get my drift ... it's a modern fairytale! And a very pleasant one too.
I guess you need to be up for escapism to fully enjoy that one.
