Product Description

From revered filmmaker Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, Le Femme Nikita) comes the extravagant and wildly vivid adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec, the coolest author and adventurist in all of Paris. The years is 1912. A 136 million year old pterodactyl egg, housed on a shelf in the Natural History Museum, has mysteriously hatched, unleashing a prehistoric monster onto the Parisian streets. But nothing fazes Adele, when she finds a connection with the ancient reptile and reveals many more extraordinary surprises... Based on the acclaimed historical fantasy books by Jacques Tardi, The Extraordinary Adventures Of Adele Blanc-Sec follows this intrepid adventurer as she uncovers mysterious Egyptian treasures, attempts to tame a wild pterodactyl, eludes dangerous enemies and braves a formidable phenomenon to save her ailing sister.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like the Mummy but nowhere near as gross Aug. 6 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adéle Blanc-Sec,Is Very Good.. June 17 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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..

4.0 out of 5 stars Good movie June 7 2013
By E.G
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.
