Caro/Jeunet is a Paris/Montmartre exhibit (until July 31) for cinema lovers of the out of the ordinary. Some recognizable film examples are Amélie Poulain, Delicatessen, Alien Resurrection, The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet, The City of Lost Children. Their film music, special effects, costumes, props are always out of the ordinary. Marc Caro is a graphic arts novelist and illustrator. Jean-Pierre Jeunet is a director. After the “Alien” success, Jeunet left Hollywood. He wanted to go back to his neighborhood and make a little film with some friends in Montmartre. Voilà! The little film became the global success, “The Fabulous Destiny of Amélie Poulain”. I can recommend the exhibit and the tea salon for a very tasty lunch.
