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.

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."

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.

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.

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.

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

As with all of Jeunet's films, this one is filled with delightful comic touches.

Micmacs becomes a supremely odd and at times hilarious caper; The Sting according to Kurt Vonnegut.

In France, revenge is a dish best served with white gloves and face paint.

Micmacs may lack the emotional depth of Amelie or A Very Long Engagement, but it'll keep you smiling almost all the way through.

I suspect this is what the world looks like in Jeunet's head all the time.

Micmacs is a fantasy film with purpose, by a director with a cause and a rampant case of attention-deficit disorder for an audience of innocent bystanders.
