With the imagination and fantasy of a Buster Keaton picture, this French comedy tells the story of Bazil, a bad-luck orphan with a stray bullet lodged in his brain. Released from the hospital after an accident, the gentle-natured Bazil is homeless. He is taken in by a motley crew of junkyard dealers living in a cave. The group's talents and aspirations are as surprising as their diverse names: Remington, Calculator, Buster, Slammer, Elastic Girl, Tiny Pete, and Mama Chow. One day, walking past two huge buildings, Bazil recognizes the logos of the weapons manufacturers that caused his misfortunes. With the help of his faithful gang of wacky friends, he sets out to take revenge. Directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, whose previous work includes Amélie and The City of Lost Children. In French, with English subtitles. Screening sponsor: L'Alliance Française de Fresno.
