*sigh* No-one does mis en scene or the absurd like the French. Beautifully shot and composed and performed.
The french reviewer below says the acting was bad but--much like a good pantomime--the exaggerated everything made it all the more digestible for a non-French speaker. My other half slept thorugh it. His loss.
A wonderful romp - brilliant fun!
BTW - subtitles are a must for the deaf and hard of hearing. Another reason why I enjoy watching foreign films.
Like French movies and generally don't mind subtitles, but this one did not do it for me. The movie could not keep up us interested and we gave up in the middle.
Gave this a miss soon after starting
Normally I look at a movie with sub-titles and groan. This movie was a delight to watch & I shall definately be watching it again.
Silly, if funny at times. Very bad acting throughout.
Fantastic! An absolute recommend! Wonderful entertainment!
Indianna Jones meets Lara Croft meets Jurassic Park. The combination works! Good old fashioned adventure movie.
Really enjoyed this, found it hilarious at times.
If you can't read you probably won't enjoy this. Subtitles. Very funny with brilliant costumes and a twisty plot. I'm definitely going to buy this one & watch it again.
I was so looking forward to seeing this movie but there is nothing saying that this film was all in french. i am so dissappointed that i am unable to watch this movie.
disappointing effort from a great director
Amelie meets Indiana jones is about right. If you don't like subtitles, learn French
Didn't watch - subtitles annoying. But looked like good movie.
Would have been an okay movie but the sub-titles really spoil it, to much reading not enough time to enjoy the visuals.
besides the annoying sub-titles,i found this movie different and entertaining and if ya like fantasy films,then you should like this movie. i give this movie a 6 outta 10...
