Michel Gondry Francja, 2013

msmichel's rating of the film Dziewczyna z lilia

Gondry has always been pretty much a 'hit and miss' director and this over-visualized 'cotton candy' of a film falls into the miss category. Early on its sweet enough until one realizes the quirky visual effects are all it has to offer then comes the tummy ache of the second half that becomes more sickening as it goes on. French filmmaking whimsy continues to exist in the shadow of Jeunet's 'Amelie'. A miss.
