La cité des enfants perdus

Marc Caro, Jean-Pierre Jeunet Germany, 1995

sister chromatid's rating of the film The City of Lost Children

This is the style of film I am most captivated by - over-the-top dystopian fantasy and "how the fuck did they do that?" set design. While there are other Caro/Jeunet films that rank higher for me, I don't know if a whole lot could go wrong with Marc Caro visuals, Angelo Badalamenti doing the score, and Jean Paul Gaultier doing the costume design. Awesome crew.
