A JOY TO WATCH. BUT.......
on 6 April 2002
Only 3 stars for a Jeunet film!!! Please let me explain...
THE CITY OF LOST CHILDREN is a film by Jean-Pierre Jeunet the genius behind Amelie & Delicatessen.
It tells the story of an orphan & a strongman/whale harpooner who try to rescue some children who have been kidnapped by an inventor so he can use their dreams.
The film is full of wierd & wonderful charactors & is a joy to watch. A 5 STAR MOVIE.
BUT THE DVD IS NOT.
The main problem I have with it is the English dubbing. Why no subtitles? It would be far better.
Also the extras are very sparse. You only get filmographies & a picture gallery.
That said if you loved Amelie or are a fan of Jeunet at the low price its worth having in the collection. Lets hope for a better version soon!!!
