The City of Lost Children
Fantasy • 1995 • 1 hr 48 min
It’s so perfectly bizarre and strange, culminating in an inventively creepy product with wry humor and solid acting and writing.
Absurd and wacky, very distinctive. Art direction is a highlight, but the story is difficult to understand.
A strange, beautiful, unique film in all aspects.
Imaginative script creates an uneasy atmosphere. It’s scary but in an alluring way. Wonderful little film
One of the most grotesque and imaginative comedies of all time. Excellent score and madly fantastic scenery.
I do not quite understand this one but my brain felt massaged after
Spooky, gorgeous, blackly comic, grotesque and Ron Perlman. Nuff said.
Powerful ideas and dark visuals about and adult children's tale
Delightfully bizarre and stylish, plays out like a nightmarish fairy tale, but the plot could use some work.
I watched it long time ago and i rememver it was dark and that i liked it.
