Jean-Pierre Jeunet Talks Micmacs

by |


Seems like an age since French director Jean-Pierre Jeunet has been on screens: his last film, the World War I drama A Very Long Engagement, bowed way back in 2004, capitalizing on the planet's then-love affair with his eccentric romance Amelie (2001) and its elvish leading lady, Audrey Tautou. Since then the filmmaker has turned down a Harry Potter installment and seen his mooted adaptation of Yann Martel's Life of Pi fall over, but this week he returns with Micmacs, a typically oddball piece about an orphan and a circus troupe taking on evil weapons manufacturers. The film touches on Jeunet's work with former colleague Marc Caro, particularly the off kilter characterization of their hit, Delicatessen. We caught up with Jeunet in Sydney to discuss the film.Back to Article
