Metal Mummy’s Movie Meme – Week 3


The director I have chosen is Jean-Pierre Jeunet, a French director who, along with his long-time collaborator Marc Caro, has made a name for himself with his unique and wonderful style. I’ve mentioned before that Amelie is one of my favourite films, and this is in large part due to the direction and vision of Jeunet, who has the most incredible talent for the visually striking and slightly macabre. In each of his films (though there have only been six), he manages to make everything look other-worldly, in an abstract, almost fairy-tale way, and he’s cast some incredible actors in his films, including the non-French speaking Ron Perlman, who turned in an amazing performance as One in ‘La Cité des enfants perdus’.

I think the best thing I can do to illustrate how I feel about Jeunet is to show you some stills from his movies, and hope that you’re as taken by them as I am.

  2. I’m another who’s seen only Amelie out of these. The stills do look amazing – a couple of them remind me of Dali paintings 🙂 x

  3. i have to be honest, i dont think i have many of his films……going on your post i may have to rectify this!! however, i did love Amelia

  4. I haven’t seen much by this director, but seeing as we seem to have similar music taste, I reckon I’ll go off and grab some more. Amelie is fabulous though.

    Thanks for joining in 🙂 x
