THE CITY OF LOST CHILDREN
LA CITÉ DES ENFANTS PERDUS
Sony Pictures Classics,
Dir: Marc Caro, Jean-Pierre Jeunet
The long-planned second feature from the creative team behind DELICATESSEN is just as bizarre, sinister and wildly imaginative as its predecessor, mixing elements of Dr. Caligari, Victor Hugo and Rube Goldberg into the story of a kind-hearted circus strongman (Ron Perlman) and his coquettish 7-year old side-kick (Judith Vittet), who attempt to stop a wicked scientist (Daniel Emilfork) from stealing the dreams of little children.
When New Jersey detective Nick Cassidy (Dolph Lundgren, who also co-wrote the screenplay) cracks down on human trafficker Viktor Dragovic (Ron Perlman), the ruthless gangster escapes to Bangkok - after killing the policeman’s family. Determined to destroy Dragovic and his entire organization, Cassidy heads for Thailand, where he finds an ally in local cop Tony Vitayakui (Tony Jaa). Michael Jai White and Peter Weller costar in this action-packed thriller.
