The sepia tint and wide-angle lens abuse can only mean that director Jean-Pierre Jeunet is back following a nearly six year absence. Micmacs finds him teamed with Dany Boon, a French comic who headlined the big 2008 hit Bienvenue chez les Ch’tis. Boon plays a video store clerk whose life is changed by a stray bullet. Obsessed with getting revenge on a pair of arms dealers, Boon falls in with a nutty group that includes frequent Jeunet collaborator Dominique Pinon and Yolande Moreau. The trailer assures us that despite the contemporary relevance, Jeunet’s love of Gallic eccentricity and Rube Goldberg-like stunts is very much intact.
