This is the new film by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and stars French comedian Dany Boon as Bazil. Bazil sees dad die via landmine as a young boy. Decades later, Bazil is working in a video shop when a stray bullet lodges itself in his brain; the doctors decide not to operate, but when he leaves hospital he finds himself both homeless and jobless.
He then tracks down the company the bullet was made by, and creates a team of misfits to take revenge on the arms dealers that shot him.
This film has lots of silent movie type gags and a bizarre sense of humour.
The look of the film stunning and has the familiar yellow hue we have seen with Amelie. There’s a frenetic caper-esque pace and a high lever of energy.
Mic Macs is weird, inventive and has that French feel and look. It’s not as wonderful as Amelie but it has enough going for it. The crazy, pacy plotlines and the visual gags and wordplay keeps it going.
