DIRECTOR: MARC CARO & JEAN-PIERRE JEUNET
CAST: RON PERLMAN, DOMINIQUE PINON, JEAN-CLAUDE DREYFUS, DANIEL EMILFORK
Beginning with a Christmas Eve invasion by an army of nefarious Santas, Jeunet and Caro’s warped fairy tale follows a boy (Joseph Lucien) wandering the streets of a fog-shrouded harbor city populated by freaks and carnies, including the circus strongman One (Ron Perlman), and terrorized by Krank, the desiccant leader of a cult harvesting the dreams of kidnapped children. Eerie and imaginative, invested with unforgettable ambience by Khondji’s green-gilled nocturnal photography
Screening as a part of Darius Khondji.
