French fabulist Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Delicatessen, The City of Lost Children, Amélie) gets a (little) bit serious for this fable about a hard-luck fellow (Dany Boon, The Valet) who suffers a debilitating brain injury after a random, drive-by shooting. He is adopted by a ragtag band of street scavengers. With the help of his inventive new friends, he vows revenge on the evil arms manufacturers responsible for his injury. Like a Mission: Impossible film gone coo-coo for Cocoa Puffs, Micmacs rumbles forward, throwing oddball characters, madcap action and surreal slapstick at its audience. 105 minutes R.
