This bizarre adult fairy tale by the directors of Delicatessen is set in a grungy future where a whacked-out inventor steals children’s dreams. Featuring a cast of freaks—six identical court jester clones, a gang of cyclopses, a talking brain, and a pair of evil Siamese twins, among others—this film is sure to tickle the absurdist in everyone. In French and Cantonese.
