(LA CITE DES ENFANTS PERDUS)
The film is set on a grand scale. The eye-popping sets, ingenious special effects, Jean-Paul Gaultier costumes, and a must-be-seen-to-be-believed cast of characters create an overall effect that you will not soon forget. And, like the classic "The Wizard of Oz," "The City of Lost Children" delves deep into the subconscious realm of children's imaginations, and -- most importantly -- their dreams. "The City of Lost Children" harks back to traditional fairy tales, staying true to those traditions by delving into wild, sometimes dark and scary, flights of fancy...some of which speak to adults as much as, if not more than, children.
