The City of Lost Children Movie Review

jean awards caro cesar

I'm one of the viewers who said, “Huh?” after watching this movie. Then I heard a much-televised promotion in which a critic described it as “eye candy.” It isn't for children, but it focuses on them, so I guess it's for grown-ups who are on the edge of their seats at the notion of an inventor stealing kid's dreams because he can't have any. Best for those who like this sort of thing. AKA: La Cité des Enfants Perdus.
