A Film By Jean-Pierre Jeunet
First it was a mine that exploded in the middle of the Moroccan desert. Years later, it was a stray bullet that lodged in his brain... Bazil doesn't have much luck with weapons. The first made him an orphan, the second holds him on the brink of sudden, instant death. Released from the hospital after his accident, Bazil is homeless. Luckily, our inspired and gentle-natured dreamer is quickly taken in by a motley crew of junkyard dealers living in a veritable Ali Baba's cave. The group's talents and aspirations are as surprising as they are diverse: Remington,Calculator, Buster, Slammer, Elastic Girl, Tiny Pete and Mama Chow. Then one day, walking by two huge buildings, Bazil recognizes the logos of the weapons manufacturers that caused all of his misfortune. He sets out to take revenge, with the help of his faithful gang of wacky friends. Underdogs battling heartless industrial giants, our gang relive the battle of David and Goliath, with all the imagination and fantasy of Buster Keaton...

Editor's Note
An underground lair serves as the point of inspiration for this deeply whimsical fantasy comedy (with echoes of Jodorowsky's RAINBOW THIEF) from French cause célèbre Jean-Pierre Jeunet (AMÉLIE, THE CITY OF LOST CHILDREN). The locale is post-9/11 Europe. As arms dealers go head to head with one another in a series of violent skirmishes -- suggesting that an apocalyptic cataclysm may be lingering on the horizon -- the unfortunate Bazil (Dany Boon) still reels from the long-ago death of his father from a roadside bomb, an event that left him orphaned as a boy. Now employed in a low-paying job as a video-store clerk, and still trying to determine how he fits into the scheme of things, he gets hit by a stray bullet from a drive-by shooting and promptly lands in the hospital. Upon release, he finds himself broke and unemployed. Hope soon crops up, however, in the form of Placard (Jean-Pierre Marielle), an ex-convict living in a scrap dump with a motley group of social outcasts -- all of whom welcome Bazil with warmth, compassion, and hospitality. Sure of his place for the first time in his life, Bazil joins forces with them to turn the dump into a lovely underground home, filled to the rafters with extraordinary inventions and sculptures. Soon after, the possibility of revenge against the munitions manufacturers responsible for Bazil's dad's death presents itself.

Expert Review Micmacs - Blu-Ray DVD Review
By: Josh Lasser Blogcritics.org Reviews
Published on: 12/13/2010 8:19 AM
Translating the title of his movie in one of the bonus features on the new Blu-ray release, Jean-Pierre Jeunet states that Micmacs means "shenanigans."  That is a brilliant description of this film which stars Dany Boon as the new guy in a group of misfits who happen to live in a dump. Boon's character, Bazil, and his new found friends go on a fantastic adventure thwarting evil, having fun, and even finding love....read the full review

Professional Reviews

Empire
3 stars out of 5 -- "Jean-Pierre Jeunet's films are rich, textured and enjoyably eccentric affairs....It's impressively inventive and entertainingly convoluted stuff..." 02/20/2010

Box Office
5 stars out of 5 -- "Star Dany Boon has charm to spare....Jeunet's most compelling movie yet, witty, poignant, and altogether magical." 04/19/2010

A.V. Club
"MICMACS is a robust, enjoyably lunatic game. It's a social commentary by way of a good Looney Tune." -- Grade: B 05/27/2010

New York Times
"The story unfolds largely through a series of carefully realized set pieces, visual jokes that produce low-key chuckles and occasional bursts of amazed laughter." 05/28/2010

Movieline
"MICMACS does have moments of considerable charm, and it gives Jeunet plenty of chances to showcase his love of intricate details." 05/25/2010

Entertainment Weekly
"[W]orking with expressive cinematographer Tetsuo Nagata, Jeunet maintains a firm control of his dreamscape creation..." -- Grade: B 06/04/2010

Los Angeles Times
"MICMACS is a whimsical whirligig of a movie filled with salvaged metal and salvaged lives..." 06/04/2010

Los Angeles Times 7 of 10
...Micmacs is ultimately shaped by Jeunet's unique creative vision -- a fun house of mirrors that is lovely to get lost in... - Betsy Sharkey

NPR 9 of 10
...Micmacs tells a tangled story that may be just too much for some viewers. But the film moves nimbly, has an exuberant sense of style and is leavened by comic asides, many of them strictly visual... - Mark Jenkins

St. Petersburg 9 of 10
...Quirky to the brink of exhaustion, the latest from Jean-Pierre Jeunet is a live-action Looney Tune with Acme contraptions and wily coyotes... - Steve Persall
