Overview

An underground lair serves as the point of inspiration for this deeply whimsical fantasy comedy (with echoes of Jodorowsky's RAINBOW THIEF) from French cause célèbre Jean-Pierre Jeunet (AMÉLIE, THE CITY OF LOST CHILDREN). The locale is post-9/11 Europe. As arms dealers go head to head with one another in a series of violent skirmishes -- suggesting that an apocalyptic cataclysm may be lingering on the horizon -- the unfortunate Bazil (Dany Boon) still reels from the long-ago death of his father from a roadside bomb, an event that left him orphaned as a boy. Now employed in a low-paying job as a video-store clerk, and still trying to determine how he fits into the scheme of things, he gets hit by a stray bullet from a drive-by shooting and promptly lands in the hospital. Upon release, he finds himself broke and unemployed. Hope soon crops up, however, in the form of Placard (Jean-Pierre Marielle), an ex-convict living in a scrap dump with a motley group of social outcasts -- all of whom welcome Bazil with warmth, compassion, and hospitality. Sure of his place for the first time in his life, Bazil joins forces with them to turn the dump into a lovely underground home, filled to the rafters with extraordinary inventions and sculptures. Soon after, the possibility of revenge against the munitions manufacturers responsible for Bazil's dad's death presents itself.

Editorial Reviews

New York Times 05-28-2010 "The story unfolds largely through a series of carefully realized set pieces, visual jokes that produce low-key chuckles and occasional bursts of amazed laughter."
Movieline 05-25-2010 "MICMACS does have moments of considerable charm, and it gives Jeunet plenty of chances to showcase his love of intricate details."
Empire 02-20-2010 3 stars out of 5 -- "Jean-Pierre Jeunet's films are rich, textured and enjoyably eccentric affairs....It's impressively inventive and entertainingly convoluted stuff..."
