Non-stop Shenanigans

Join Vine Street at the Movies on Wednesday, May 4 for Micmacs, an imaginative French farce about a man who has lost a lot to the arms industry. He enlists some crazy new friends in an intricate and original plan to destroy two unrepentant weapons manufacturers. It’s another inventive comedy from the director of Delicatessen and Amelie. As always, showtime is at 7 p.m. in Fellowship Hall. This film is rated R.

Betsy Sharkey of the Los Angeles Times writes, “You could spend all day sorting through the cinematic influences Jeunet has woven into the film… That sort of quirky brilliance is in much of Jeunet's work and it is very much at play here, [creating] unexpected charm, with irony rich like candy and worth savoring along with the surprise. [Micmacs is] ...a fun house of mirrors that is lovely to get lost in.”
