The City of Lost Children is a dazzling fantasy adventure from Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro, creators of Delicatessen. They bring their surreal vision to the story of Krank, a tormented scientist who sets about kidnapping local children in order to steal their dreams and reverse his accelerated ageing process. When Krank's henchmen kidnap his brother, local fisherman and former circus strongman One (Ron Perlman) sets out on a journey to Krank's nightmarish laboratory, accompanied by a little orphan girl called Miette.

With stunning visuals from Darius Khondji, costumes by Jean-Paul Gaultier and a haunting score by David Lynch collaborator Angelo Badalamenti, The City of Lost Children cemented Jeunet and Caro's reputation as film-makers with a unique vision.


Cast: Dominique Pinon, Ron Perlman
