MOVIE REVIEW

Review by Nathan Samdahl (C)

Amazed by Amelie, yet underwhelmed by A Very Long Engagement, I really didn't know quite what to expect with Micmacs, the third film I've seen from famed French director Jean Pierre Jeunet.  Sadly, Micmacs falls a bit short of both other films.  Micmacs follows the main character Bazil, who is taken in by an oddball group of characters known as the Micmacs after he is struck in the head by an errant bullet and subsequently loses his job and apartment.  Together they help Bazil take down two weapons manufacturers (that sit right across the street from one another), one of which created the bullet that shot him and the other that made the landmine that killed his father.  It is sort of Duplicity meets The Ladykillers, with a bit of the Coen brothers' Hudsucker Proxy thrown in.  It's a fun, interesting concept that should have a lot going for it.
