MICMACS is the latest dazzlingly cinematic outing from Jean-Pierre Jeunet (AMELIE, DELICATESSEN), a satire on the arms trade which grounds this director's cinema of fantasy firmly in reality.

Bazil (Dany Boon) is the son of a bomb disposal expert who died on a job in Morocco. Years later, Bazil is struck by a stray bullet, which remains lodged in his head, leading to some strange side effects. Bazil doesn't have much luck with weapons. The first made him an orphan, the second holds him on the brink of sudden and instant death.

Released from the hospital, Bazil is homeless but adopted by a motley crew of secondhand dealers living in a veritable Ali Baba's cave, whose talents and aspirations are as surprising as they are diverse: Remington (Omar Sy), Calculator (Marie-Julie Baup), Buster (Dominique Pinon), Slammer (Jean-Pierre Marielle), Elastic Girl (Julie Ferrier), Tiny Pete (Michel Cremades) and Mama Chow (Yolande Moreau).

With his team of misfits he sets out on a quest to bring down those he holds responsible for his misfortunes. Breathtaking and inventive, with pacy, edge-of-the-seat storytelling, MICMACS has no end of visual gags and witty wordplay.
