Director - Marc Caro & Jean-Pierre Jeunet
Genre - Comedy/Drama/Fantasy/Horror/Romance
Coming on like the French cousins of Tim Burton, the directing team of Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro ventures into the same sort of otherworldly shenanigans which highlight Burton's career. Set in an undisclosed time-frame, maybe the future (although the future here looks like a past you wouldn't want to revisit), our hero arrives for a job at a run-down apartment building. A former clown, he is happily unaware of the sinister going-ons which lurk in the place. Cannibalistic horror made to look fable-like. Think 'Hansel & Gretel' in large scale.
