About Jean-Pierre Jeunet

There are qualities about his films that make them undeniably a work by Jeunet. The plotting and use of flashbacks to fill in the back story, the quirky characters that are truer than reality, the quick cuts, the outrageous set designs that are either brighter or duller than life but never true , the surreal and absurd moments, the camera moves that unashamedly call attention to themselves, and the sense that you're in the hands of a masterful filmmaker.
