Where’s Audrey Tautou? This agreeable fairy tale by whimsical Frenchman Jean-Pierre Jeunet has all the underdog flavor and kinetic energy of Jeunet’s Amélie and Un long dimanche de fiançailles, but lacks a central character strong enough to carry the load. A group of misfits living in a subterranean cavern beneath a junkyard take revenge on two rival weapons manufacturers, amid much whiz-bang. The band of outsiders is led by Bazil (Dany Boon), intent on getting even with the arms merchants whose products killed his father and left a bullet lodged in his cranium. He’s no Tautou. Probably Jeunet’s lightest-weight film, but its target is death merchants so we really can’t kick too much. Film-centric homages all over the place, from classic Warner Bros. music cues to Jacques Tati-style visual riffs. Screenplay by Jeunet and Guillaume Laurant. Costarring André Dussollier and Yolande Moreau (105 min.).
