Micmacs (Micmacs à tire-larigot) Reviews

Austin Kennedy
Film Geek Central

It's superbly directed but the story just isn't involving and the characters are empty shells. Knowing how awesome this director can be, MICMACS was a major letdown.

Movie Talk

French director Jean-Pierre Jeunet's distinctive brand of zany and whimsical humour has won him a dedicated following, and fans of Delicatessen and Amélie should adore his new comedy thriller Micmacs.

Micmacs is quick and funny and easy but so light it floats away from you when all is said and done, and doesn't leave much behind. It's worth the time you spend with it though.

We are encouraged to cheer for Bazil and his friends because they are so warm, quirky, and lovable ... Frankly, it's all a bit obnoxious.

Uruguay Total

Casi una mixtura entre Delicatessen (1991) y Amèlie (2001), Micmacs se nutre de referencias clásicas (el circo, el cine mudo, la pantomima, los dibujos animados y la historieta) para narrar una aventura cómica brillantemente orquestada.

Micmacs, if light and silly, is still a wonderful thing to behold, as clever and beautifully constructed as the wonderful automata that populate the tinker's workroom in the film.

It's a regular Amélie's 11, laden with screwball schemes and stripped of emotional arcs.

Minor, almost trite, but still worth treasuring if you're not put off by "precious."

Dripping with gooey crowd-pleasing sentimentality.

So much time is devoted to chases and ricocheting bullets that whimsy for whimsy's sake takes over.

Times-Picayune

Boon's lovely, embraceable performance is perfectly twinned with Jeunet's deft, artful direction. The result is playful and oddly affecting, a Rube Goldberg contraption of a film.

Philip Martin
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

As a filmmaker, [Jeunet's] prime virtues have to do with textural details, discursive forays into character, little grace notes that accrete into rueful human - and humane - comedy.

S'il n'y a rien qui cloche en soi avec ce sixième film de Jean-Pierre Jeunet, tout porte à croire que le projet fut tout de même entièrement réalisé sur le pilote automatique.

Jeunet remains one of the world's most imaginative directors. But Micmacs is a misfire.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

A colorful three-ring circus of a movie, as one might expect from a production with a cast of characters that includes a human cannonball and a comely contortionist; unfortunately, the labored whimsy quickly wears out its welcome...

July 22, 2010

While it bears some stylistic similarities to Jeunet's early work, in its muted yet rich color palette and more-than-slightly off-kilter vision of a surreal world filled with oddball characters, it feels far less substantial than that earlier work.

The results are so imaginative, so visually inventive and playful that we easily overlook the film's flaws - even when they threaten the very elements we're enjoying.

The charming if slight end result suggests Michael Moore by way of the Keystone Kops.

While the parts are quite good, the sum is pretty pedestrian.

Deliriously inventive but dramatically empty, Micmacs is like watching a talented kid who doesn't know when to stop showing off
