Don’t listen to the reviews – this is a magical film as good as his others. Jean-Pierre Jeunet is a genius film maker.

Boon plays a mild-mannered video store clerk called Bazil who takes a stray bullet to the head; the doctors can’t remove it and he ends up living rough with a band of underground weirdos (the Micmacs of the title). Aided by the Micmacs – one  invents Heath Robinson-type ­contraptions, another is a contortionist, another a human cannonball – Bazil cooks up a convoluted scheme to take revenge on the arms manufacturers who maimed him (and killed his father).
