While witnessing a gun battle, videostore clerk Bazil (Boon) is hit in the head by a stray bullet. He survives, but is left homeless and jobless. After he’s taken in by a group of scrapyard-dwelling misfits, Bazil sets out to wreak his own inimitable revenge on the arms manufacturers who both made the bullet that hit him, and the landmine that killed his father some years previously.
Jeunet himself describes the film best: Delicatessen meets Amélie. But we’d add that, while it’s certainly breezy fun, it’s not quite as good as either.
