Monsieur Hulot's Heist,
This review is from: Micmacs [DVD] (DVD)
The plot of Micmacs is very daft indeed, yet executed with such care and ingenuity that it is both clever and funny. The French have a grasp on whimsy that we don't often see in British films. Wallace & Grommit may be an example, but other humour (like Mr Bean) tends towards the comedy of embarassment. This film is as if Amelie has captured the Bourne franchise, at times it would only have taken the Mission Impossible theme to change direction. This is a funny, ingenious and charming film.
But, if ultra-realism is your taste you might want to give it a miss.
