Jean-Pierre Jeunet, writer-director of Delicatessen and Amélie, is considered one of the masters of contemporary French cinema. His latest offering promises to be as quirky and whimsical as its predecessors. Micmacs stars Dany Boon as Bazil, a video store clerk who takes a bullet to the head. When doctors can’t remove it, he sets up home with a bunch of underground weirdos who live rough, enlisting their help to get revenge on the arms manufacturers who injured him.
