This is a very interesting movie. I bought it to show to my younger students. The subtitles are nicely translated, but there are about 3/4 slightly questionable scenes that not all parents would want their 10-12 yr olds watching (ie, man peeing on a statue, a woman flirts, some swearing....). However, it is entertaining throughout.

I rather watch her than Indiana jones any day,what a nice little movie,if you're
in to adventure films that is,trying to rescue her sister,Adéle Blanc-Sec,sets out on
her biggest adventure that will pit her against some very dangerous people,there is a nude
scene in this movie of a woman breast in a bath-tub so be aware of that,if that was not there
it could've been for the whole family,very nice movie though..

A fun, effects-driven film, full of quirky characters and impossible events. The story is just a bit rough around the edges, but Adèle's spunk and Besson's eccentricity makes up for it. Many of the best bits are in the preview, but the journey through the film world is both luxuriant and charming, and the ending will still be a surprise. I've never read the original Jacques Tardi books written in the 70s so I can't compare, but fans of director Luc Besson will be pleased. Be sure to watch through the credits for an additional scene! It's truly a shame it doesn't seem that the film will be released in the US any time soon, but perhaps Besson is planning on filming a Hollywood version?

The Blu-ray contains the original film in French with choice of English or French subtitles. The special features are in French only, but will still be enjoyable to watch for English speakers. The disc plays fine in the US on standard players.

Special features (in French) include:
Adèle & Agathe - cut scenes developing the sister's relationship
Une journée dans les coulisses avec Louise - a short about Adèle's various disguises
Parenthèse Onirique - (no dialogue) assorted artistic behind-the-scenes clips
Documentaire du tournage - an interesting "Making of" documentary.

I'm sure my students will love it (after I skip one part with topless bather). Good special effects, costumes and an entertaining/exciting story. Luc Besson is one of my favorite directors.

Legendary director Luc Besson of ‘The Fifth Element’ and ‘Leon,’ transports us to the wild days of early 20th-century Paris, where feisty young writer Adèle Blanc-Sec embarks on thrilling missions to find exciting material for her book and a cure for her sick sister. She sails to Egypt to raid a tomb that supposedly hides the cure, but what will she do when an army of resurrected mummies get in the way? Back in Paris she finds the city in chaos after a 136 million-year old pterodactyl egg mysteriously hatches. Adèle Blanc-Sec realises she is the only one game enough to take control of the prehistoric bird. Narrated by Bernard Lanneau.

This is a great adventure. The movie recreates the comic book world, of early 20th Century Paris and Egypt, which it is based on, with an astonishing verisimilitude. The characters leap off the page, and come to life, including the mummies, with great wit and personality. Hopefully, the series will continue, with more film adaptations, soon.

Il s'agit ici d'une interprétation que Luc Besson à fait d'une Bande Dessinée. Cette BD est du genre fantaisiste et fantastique. C'est ce que film représente, et en ce sens c'est réussi. Les personnages sont caricaturaux, mais c'est voulu et c'est fidèle à la BD. Si vous cherchez une histoire réaliste, cherchez ailleurs. Si, par contre, vous avez adorés les films d'Indiana Jones ,et des Pirates des Caraïbes, vous serez peut-être ravis. Ce film n'atteint pas les niveaux de ceux que je viens de noter, mais mérite d'être visionné par ceux que le genre intéresse.
