haha this film crazy! laugh,fun,weird,freak at one time. Reminds me of Terry Gilliam works. Maybe the story kinda weird but i love it!
Um dos filmes mais bonitos que eu já vi.
My rate: 55% - Interesting concept of morality tales of a dystopian world with distinct atmosphere. It was interesting initially but then the experience got dreary to the end. I adored the visual style but I didn't like the way the story was brought out. But I guess this film's surrealistic imagination is the one that brings.
Miles better than any of Jeunet's other work. A tender little love story wrapped into a bleakly funny, imaginative post-apocalyptic world. Amélie's color-vomiting is traded for a nice sepia hue, and there's little-to-no style-for-style's-sake madness.
finally something worth watching. Amelie is shit compared to this.
humor negro da melhor qualidade
Dominique Pinon looks totally weird
A delirious trip by Jean-Pierre Jeunet who became a serious case of talent when it comes to put in images what is inside of people's minds.
I found myself liking it much more the second time around.
The art direction is amazing, the story and the sets are really cool, the dystopian atmosphere works really well and the characters offer us an exceptional film about cannibalism with an excellent dark humour. However, I got kind of confused with the plot when I watched it, damn troglodistes!
As long as it's cooked...
with respect to fans, this was the most obnoxious thing I've ever seen. I lasted about 20 minutes.
I watched this without subtitles (and only a bare minimum knowledge of French) and still really enjoyed this.
Such envy with Lousion sweaters.
It is hard to not compare the delicacy of this Jeunet's work with his other works. While the works is still faithfully following Jeunet's tradition, the degree of predictability of the story is so overpowering, that left me in an uninterested position to know more, compare with let's say his Amelie.
It's batshit brazy, then non-sensical, then alright.
Kinda funny and interesting. But i don't recommend this to anyone.
I was completely bored while watching this film. Perhaps this is one of those love or hate films. Anyway, didn't like it, didn't find any humor in it. Although, it has a very interesting premise (food as trade currency) and some nice shots.
He at least has the talent of being able to create an engrossing self contained little worlds going for him. but the carnivalesque directing is prone to induce embarrassed grimaces and repeated "why am I watching this?"
Oh man! This film is something else. Words fail me. To describe the visual complexities of this film would do it a disservice.It must be experienced. It's a very dark comedy that contains several of the cinema's finest set pieces. It involves the uniquely French concept of what would someone put up with for a small piece of meat for dinner in a world where there is virtually no food. I don't want to spoil it. See it!
Dark, surreal, humorous, original. However, for some reason, I didn't like the ending.
Nah...I did not like it. Except for a couple of funny scenes like the bed squeeking and 'blind' date scene it just didn't interest me
Next to La haine, the best French film of the past 30 years. The film never lets up and juggles various genres with the precision of a circus performer. Top notch fantasy/suspense from a not-too-well-known director.
I’d rather stay with Kin dza dza or Underground which are related in style and absurdity… this one seems somewhat empty, dumb and boring, with few worthy moments.
I actually prefer this over Amelie. This is one of my all time favorites. Amelie I like, this I love, but I see why people like Amelie more.
I agree with MARZ, it wasn't really as good as I thought it'd be, but it had it's funny and clever moments.
Not exactly my cup of tea almost an eyesore but it got funny at some parts and I thought I could finish this film.
A marvel of visual and sound design, but it's constant insistence of packing every scene full of its own originality really got in the way of my ability to comprehend it.
