Feel goodBy StephUK (3 reviews) from Abingdon , 29 Oct 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]HI,
Saw Micmacs at the London film festival and it has all the qualities of a fantastic 'Feel good' movie (such a contrast with my other 'film of the festival' recommendation: Precious).
J-P Jeunet departs from his most recent movies (Amelie, Un long dimanche de fiancailles) and Micmacs is closer to 'Delicatessen' and 'La cite des enfants perdus'.
The actors are convincing and the film universe perfectly fits Danny Boon poetry.

Something a bit different...By SiSlayRD500 (132 reviews) from Solihull , 06 Apr 2013Very good!... I thought this was a pleasant, imaginative, at times humorous and overall an enjoyable film. Quite Stylised, but in a good, typically French way with that familiar fantasy / surreal look and feel to it; if you've seen others of this genre, you'll recognise quite a few of the faces - ALL very good and suitable. Definitely recommended for those that like something a bit different etc.
Jeunet's imagination.By Harashta (7 reviews) , 18 Mar 2013Another ingeneous film from the imaginative Jeunet. A bizarre collection of characters come together to exact revenge in an hilarious series of events.
Tres AmusantBy Iggi_1 (109 reviews) , 03 Dec 2012Very entertaining film, hilarious at times, quirky and odd throughout. The situation and story are totally ridiculous, but, then is that not the case for most films? We loved it.
Give it a chanceBy a customer , 09 Oct 2012Good film, once you get past the first twenty minutes or so. Almost gave up at the beginning, but glad we didn't!
Fabulously funny (and a bit off-the-wall)By a customer , 28 Sep 2012This is a fabulously funny film (and a bit off-the -wall) and very clever with it - if you loved the surreal humour of Deilcatessan you're going to thoroughly enjoy this too.
