Story


First it was a mine that exploded in the middle of the Moroccan desert. Years later, it was a stray bullet that lodged in his brain... Bazil doesn't have much luck with weapons. The first made him an orphan, the second holds him on the brink of sudden, instant death.

Released from the hospital after his accident, Bazil is homeless. Luckily, our inspired and gentle-natured dreamer is quickly taken in by a motley crew of secondhand dealers living in a veritable Ali Baba's cave. The group's talents and aspirations are as surprising as they are diverse: Remington, Calculator, Buster, Slammer, Elastic Girl, Tiny Pete and Mama Chow.

Then one day, walking by two huge buildings, Bazil recognizes the logos of the weapons manufacturers that caused all of his misfortune. He sets out to take revenge, with the help of his faithful gang of wacky friends. Underdogs battling heartless industrial giants, our gang relive the battle of David and Goliath, with all the imagination and fantasy of Buster Keaton...

“..Jeunet has a lot of fun; but his film is straining to ­generate charm that doesn't quite ­materialise..”
by Andrew Pulver [The Guardian]
“..Another beguiling if draining fantasia from Jean-Pierre Jeuet that harkens back to silent movies..”
by Kirk Honeycutt [Hollywood Reporter]
“..while it's certainly breezy fun, it's not quite as good as either..”
by Dan Jolin [Empire Magazine]
