Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec February 8, 2014Posted by stuffilikenet in Awesome, Brilliant words, Mutants, Uncategorizable, Video.
The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec is an exceptionally charming cinema piece featuring mystery, adventure, advanced physics, ancient wisdom, Jurassic nostalgia and breezy dialogue…especially if you speak French. Fear not, mes amis, there are subtitles.
Adele is a writer specializing in the bizarre and outré, such as Peruvian Yetis and sundry other mysteries, and has made some remarkable friends, one of whom is going to help her save her ailing sister by reviving a dead physician by extraordinary means (wait a minute. That implies there are ordinary means for raising the dead). Make that “advanced physics”. Yeah, that’s the ticket.
Anyway, this is one damned charming film, helmed capably by the light touch of Luc Besson (The Fifth Element) and based upon the comic books of Jaques Tardi. It is very, very French, and I just adored it.
Here’s the trailer:
