   My lovely boyfriend, Ruben, surprised me with a great movie last weekend. I completely forgot that it had just opened, and thought he was taking me to see Get Him to the Greek. Early Saturday morning, we drove to the theater just outside of town. The closest theater playing the movie. I was ecstatic when he told me we were gonna see MicMacs. The latest work by director, Jean-Pierre Jeunet. He's written and directed some of the most beautiful films I've ever seen.. including Delicatessen, City of Lost Children, a Very Long Engagement, and one of my all time favs (maybe one of yours, too) Amelie!
      MicMacs tells the story of Bazil (marvelously portrayed by ex-mime Danny Boon) who wants revenge on two rival weapons manufacturers. With the help of some new friends, who guard the local junkyard, magic begins to ensue. Jeunet is a remarkable storyteller. Something so serious, as weapons, is told in such a visually stunning way. It's a modern "classic French film".  I loved seeing what the super strong small old dude, Pierre, makes out of some of the junk he finds. Or the contortionist, who just wants to be loved. The cast of characters, including the great Dominique Pinon, all contribute to this gem of a film. I was left, extremely happy, after.

Hope you have a magical weekend. hearts.
