Synopsis:
'The City of Lost Children' is a dazzling fantasy adventure from Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro, creators of Delicatessen. They bring their surreal vision to the story of Krank, a tormented scientist who sets about kidnapping local children in order to steal their dreams and so reverse his accelerated ageing process. When Krank's henchmen kidnap his brother, local fisherman and former circus strongman One sets out on a journey to Krank's nightmarish laboratory, accompanied by Miette, an orphan girl who has her own.

Visual indigestion - The City of Lost Children review by JK

Spoiler Alert
08/02/2018

There was probably some point to this film but I couldn't hang around to find out what it was. Heaven knows what the set must have cost, not to mention all the luminous green water.

Very French, pretentious, baffling, all style no substance film with some eye-catching images - The City of Lost Children review by PV

Spoiler Alert
08/01/2019

My favourite bit of this film is the start - the scene with the Santa Clauses is great, all bendy lenses etc.

All goes downhill after that - and one also wonders if, in France, in 1995, it was acceptable for film makers to terrify tiny children for the purposes of cinema.

2 stars for the style and imagery - otherwise, no stars.
