The City Of Lost Children


city05a magnificent creation by my favorite French duo, Marc Caro and Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Delicatessen, Amelie). i seem to be a little out of words for describing this film. i only remember i was a lot younger when i first watched it, and it scared me a little. it puts me in a funny mood. like a child, i keep shifting from sad to happy to scared to loved to abandoned. it’s like an innocent cycle of feelings. i have an unusual attraction for these sort of things. perhaps an unusual character myself? fantastic capturing music by Angelo Badalamenti makes me think of a dark and forgotten circus in a parallel world somewhere. this is getting weirder and weirder. i’ll finish with this: watch the film and you’ll have a better idea of what i’m talking about. if you already did, i hope this post makes sense to you. good luck!
