A Film by
Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro

Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro burst to the forefront of world cinema with their visually arresting, raucously fun movie "Delicatessen" (1991). Since then, the filmmakers have been conjuring up their next directorial effort, another elaborately detailed universe of fantasy, entitled "The City of Lost Children." While once again deeply rooted in the mechanics of cause and effect, the new film is also reminiscent of such groundbreaking visual tours de force as "Brazil" and "Time Bandits."

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.
