An eccentric carny, action comedy...

Rag-and-bone visionary Jean-Pierre Jeunet scavenges his own career (Amelie’s whimsy; Delicatessen’s grotesquerie) for his eccentric action comedy about a troupe of carnies bringing down a duo of arms dealers. The daredevil set pieces are sensational – you’ll need to rewind to catch every detail of Jeunet’s Mousetrap-style invention. Sadly, the haphazard plotting and sub-Chaplin clowning tumble far below the director’s best.
