MICMACS!!!!!! ...trailerMICMACS!!!!! the director who brought you amelie and the city of lost children is back with micmacs!!! it is about a man and his friends come up with an intricate and original plan to destroy two big weapons manufacturers after being lodged with a bullet to his head. its original french title is macmacs a tire-larigot, (non-stop madness). the film is billed as a "satire on the world arms trade.". and that is exactly what we get from the film.
jean-pierre jeunet. what can i say about the man. he knows cinema. he knows how to tell a story. in all his films, he has incorporated what a real film should entail: interesting story and character. but he takes that to the extreme. his characters are embedded with such originality and quirks that one cant help but admire and be fascinated by them. his use of mis-en-scene is truly incredible. he is able to think of a situation or scene, and map out exactly what and how every color, object, person, should be. his attention to detail and imagination can be unparalleled. check out the trailer
