From visionary director Luc Besson (THE FIFTH ELEMENT) comes an adventure set in the early part of the 20th century. The story follows popular novelist Adele Blanc-Sec (Louise Bourgoin) and her dealings with would-be suitors, the cops, monsters and other distractions. Legendary cartoonist Jacques Tardi's original stories perfectly recreate the intrigue, romance and excitement of one of the most tumultuous periods in history.
Set in 1912. Adele Blanc-Sec (Louise Bourgoin), an intrepid young adventurer, will go to any lengths to achieve her aims, including sailing to Egypt to tackle mummies of all shapes and sizes. Meanwhile, in Paris, a 136 million-year old pterodactyl egg on a shelf in the natural history museum has mysteriously hatched, and the bird subjects the city to a reign of terror from the skies. But nothing fazes Adele Blanc-Sec, whose adventures reveal many more extraordinary surprises...
