The City of Lost Children



(1995) ***1/2

Beautifully acted and wildly inventive, but also at times confusing and hard to follow, CoLC is a surreal fantasy adventure following the quest of strongman One and sidekick Miette to rescue One's little brother from an evil dream-stealer.

That's pretty much this movie in a nutshell, except I'd probably replace "acted" with "shot."

Hmmm - think I'll leave this one alone. I get to so few, I don't really have time for confusing and hard to follow!
