Micmacs by Jean-Pierre Jeunet


If any of you are fans of Jean-Pierre Jeunet, director of Amélie and The City of the Lost Children, I recently discovered this off-the-wall trailer. According to Odessa & Tucson, a movie review blog:

The central plot follows unfortunate Bazil (Dany Boon), whose father was killed by a landmine and who has been accidentally shot in the head while working at a video store. He returns from the hospital with the bullet still lodged in his skull (it could kill him at any time, we’re told), and quickly finds himself unemployed, homeless and generally very down on his luck. The logos of the companies who made the bullet in his skull and the mine which killed his father are burnt into his memory, and when out collecting junk for the carnivalesque group of friends he’s acquired, he stumbles upon the two companies’ offices and vows to bring them down.

Thanks to (OvO) for pointing out this trailer!
