If you like traditional Bad Boys II kinds of movies, with simple to follow, slam-bam action, you probably won't dig City of Lost Children. However, if you have an appreciation for unique cinematic style and stories that stray from the norm (and I really mean stray), this is probably going to float your boat.
The story is as follows, (I swear I'm not giving anything away either)...a circus strongman and an orphan girl team up to rescue a young boy who's been kidnapped by this futuristic religious cult called the Cyclops. They've intentionally blinded themselves and attached cyborg-like eye cameras so that they may "see God" better.
The Cyclops regularly kidnap children and take them to an evil madman whose accomplices include a 3 foot tall woman, 4 cloned dimwitted servants and a talking brain. (You heard me right.) The evil madman tries to tap into these children's dreams so that he may try and gain a soul.
Ok, if you're still reading this, clearly your intrigued. It's hard to describe the look and feel of this movie. It's got a little of everything, sci-fi, fantasy, drama, and comedy. It's dark and light at the same time. Sci-fi action enthusiasts should know that this really doesn't have a lot of action, so don't expect gunplay and martial arts, it's just not that type of movie.
The real reason to see this movie is for the cinematic style and visuals. Word to the wise, the only similarity between this and Amelie are these two reasons. Amelie is a much lighter feeling movie overall, so there are bound to be a few people who loved Amelie, but do not like City of Lost Children and perhaps vice versa. (And you will notice some of the same actors in both movies as well.

THE CITY OF LOST CHILDREN is a fantastic film from visionary directors Caro and Jeunet. Later Jeunet would helm ALIEN RESURRECTION, and they created the fantastic DELICATESSEN. But here is one of their most beloved creations in all its glory! The story centers around a mythical town where small children are being kidnapped by a gang of strange cyclops men with electronic eyes. They are taken to an evil scientist named Krank who is trying to mine their dreams so he can have emotions that make him happy. A small orphan and a circus strongman team up to find the children, and one overly hungry one in particular. Along the way their adventures are painted in big splashy set pieces populated with oddball characters that loom larger than life. The DVD gives you incredible choices! See it in widescreen, dubbed or French, or listen to the revealing commentary with American star Ron Perlman and Jeunet. Fans of BRAZIL and DARK CITY will be delighted. And David Lynch fans may recognize the moody score from Angelo Badalementi. Fashionistas can revel in the incredible costumes from Gaultier!

Ok look past the part that it is in subtitles. Now that your past the subtitles look past that it's french. If you can look past those two things you have a [heck] of a fantastic movie on your hands. The movie is creepy but tells a story unlike anyother. For people who enjoy fantasty with a twisted since of humor than I say give this movie a try . This is what I call a unique movie there will be some like it but in my mind no movie will ever be better than this movie.

This movie has a lot of imiganation going for it. It has all sorts of crazy characters, a gang of child thiefs, a grown up with the mental capacity of a child, a brain in an aquarium that can communicate, a bunch of clones, a very small lady, a mad scientist with an army of cyclopsis, and some weird twins that communicate on some higher level. The problem with it for me though was that we are introduced to all of these characters early on so the rest t of the movie seems to loose its imigination. The director shows us the characters and then trys to build a story around them although we are never really givin an details on what is going on, it felt as though there should have been some sort of write up at the begining laying down the setting and plot details because the world in which all this takes place is very obviously not the one we are currently living in. Still though it was definatly a refreshingly origonal type of movie for people who are the mood for something weird, it is definatly weird.

From the opening frames of a little boy's Christmas eve dream turned nightmare, this remarkable film by Jeunet and Caro (Delicatessen) is a singular cinematic achievement. This comictragic nightmare boasts some of the most extensive sets ever constructed (the entire city was built in a huge warehouse)and elaborate special effects that were so cutting edge they still boggle the senses today.
For those who care, there is a plot, in fact quite an elaborate storyline, but it 's really just a vehicle for a series of amazingly bizarre and visionary scenes that only Jeunet and Caro could come up with.
Part Grimms fairytale, part Phillip k Dickian sci fi tale, part Cocteau vision, City of Lost Children is like nothing you have ever seen.
The DVD is the only way to see this film. Because of the muted look (the film seems to take place in a perpetual twilight) the film looks grainy and indistinct in VHS. The DVD boasts a fine transfer and, as a bonus, an interesting commentary by Jeunet and actor Ron Perlman .
The score is lush and haunting, a great enhancement to a unique and in its own way, perfect film.
