Jean Pierre Jeunet, my favourite French director.

Delicatessen (1991)

I've seen this twice it's hard to describe but I like it.  Such a quirky and imaginative style.

The City of Lost Children (1995)

This made me a fan, this is probably his best movie just amazing on all levels.

Alien Resurrection (1997)

The only hollywood film he did, I think this is amazing too and very underrated.

Amelie (2001)

Probably his most popular.  Love this movie, Audrey Tautou is gorgeous.  A romantic fantasy.

A Very Long Engagement (2004)

I saw this when it came out.  Not really a fan.

--I haven't seen Micmacs or The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet--

Big Bug (2021)


A group of bickering suburbanites find themselves stuck together when an android uprising causes their well intentioned household robots to lock them in for their own safety.


Sounds interesting, I'll definitely check it out.
