La cité des enfants perdus

Marc Caro, Jean-Pierre Jeunet Germany, 1995

Phil Worfel's rating of the film The City of Lost Children

I wanted to cut this film up into small bite sized bits and eat them for months. Every frame is sumptuously detailed with breathtaking visuals. This was my introduction to Ron Perlman having not seen Beauty and the Beast. Judith Vittet turns in one of the best child performances I've ever seen.
