A marvelous French film from Jean-Pierre Jeunet, before Amelie. Set in post apocalyptic France where there is a food shortage and grain is the new currancy, a butcher (and landlord) supplies meat to the occupants of the apartment building he lives in. Luring in victims through job ads. What's a little more disturbing is the tenants know where the meat comes from. Things change though when a circus performer arrives and makes an impression on everyone, especially the butcher's lonely daughter. This the is film, for those who do not know, with the famous squeaky bed scene, pure brilliance went into that.
Noted as one of the biggest flops in box office and cinema history. I used to watch this all the time when I was younger. Upon reflections I see its flaws and how ridiculous it is, for instance, where did all those cigarettes come from? Why does he have gils? From an evolutionary standing, this 'waterworld' would have existed for decades in order for that to happen to his ears. Looking beyond this, searching for dry land/new home vibe, its an ok film. Kevin Costner should have know though, you mess with water, prepare to be broke.
No not the mediocre musical, the strange animated film about 9 little creations who were made to fight the machines and bring back life to the world. The trailer doesn't really fully explain what it is happening and even in the film, its not quite clear how 9 small creations, made and given life by a scientist who was also responsible for creating a deadly self aware machine that brought about the destruction of humans, can solve anything. Each little creation represents a part of the scientist's soul and they all have their important role to play.
