Consensus: It might be a little too whimsical for its own good, but Micmacs delivers more of the inventive silliness that director Jean-Pierre Jeunet is known for.

Minor, almost trite, but still worth treasuring if you're not put off by "precious."

Eric D. Snider

I suspect this is what the world looks like in Jeunet's head all the time.

It's superbly directed but the story just isn't involving and the characters are empty shells. Knowing how awesome this director can be, MICMACS was a major letdown.

Jeunet remains one of the world's most imaginative directors. But Micmacs is a misfire.

Micmacs never bores -- Jeunet keeps the pace brisk and the mood ridiculous -- but the movie piles on the whimsy so tirelessly, you eventually start to choke on it.

French director Jean-Pierre Jeunet's distinctive brand of zany and whimsical humour has won him a dedicated following, and fans of Delicatessen and Amélie should adore his new comedy thriller Micmacs.

While the parts are quite good, the sum is pretty pedestrian.

Micmacs, finally, is a romp through comic cinema history in which everything zips by so fast that you're too distracted to notice that it's all completely meaningless.

Joshua Starnes

Micmacs is quick and funny and easy but so light it floats away from you when all is said and done, and doesn't leave much behind. It's worth the time you spend with it though.

Bog-standard Jeunet: outlandish characters, a plot dancing wildly on the edge of coincidence, and with something significant to say at the end of all the quirk.… More
