Indie Trailer Sunday: Jean-Pierre Jeunet's Micmacs US Trailer
Ah yes, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, he's definitely got his fans. Sony Pictures Classics debuted earlier this week the official US trailer (via Yahoo) for Jeunet's new film Micmacs, or Micmacs à tire-larigot in French. It's a whimsical fairy-tale-like film about a quirky?? guy who tries to destroy two big weapons manufacturers with a team of mistfit friends. It looks so incredibly fun and I'm actually very excited to see it, probably because I'm in the mood for a fun French flick like this. It's been playing at some festivals (like SXSW recently) and getting fairly good reviews (see FSR). It's finally hitting theaters in May, so check out the new trailer below!

Micmacs, aka Micmacs à tire-larigot in French, is both written and directed by beloved French filmmaker Jean-Pierre Jeunet, of Things I Like, Things I Don't Like, Delicatessen, The City of Lost Children, Alien: Resurrection, Amélie, and A Very Long Engagement previously. The screenplay was co-written by Jeunet and Oscar nominated screenwriter Guillaume Laurant, also of City of Lost Children, Amélie, and A Very Long Engagement previously. This first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival where it was picked up by Sony Pictures Classics here in the US. Micmacs will arrive in limited theaters on May 28th this summer.
Mark my words, if you have a heart and like things that are fun, you will dig this movie. Clever, imaginative and incredibly well-acted by Dany Boon and others. If you dug Amelie (and if you didn't, what's wrong with you), you will enjoy Micmacs.

Although I'd love to say that i'm looking forward to see this, it looks too much like "Amelie part 2" (sorta). But anyway, everything Jean Pierre Jeunet does (except for his last film: booooring as hell) is great, so, let's wait for it in a "tres jolie" mood!!!

I really like this director a lot... To be honest I really wish he had somehow not been involved in the Alien Resurrection thing though... damn was that horrible.

Loved it. And Alien Resurrection was great.

more filmmakers should employ imagination like this man. the movie landscape would be a more eccentric and fun place, full of more unexpected surprises.

I've watched this movie so, so many times. It's incredibly good, and has become one of my favorite movies. One of Jeunet's best in a long time, possibly superior to Amelie in some ways; and all of this is coming from a huge Jeunet fan. Be excited to see this one.
