Micmacs is a 2009 French comedy film by French director Jean-Pierre Jeunet. The film is billed as a “satire on the world arms trade”. It premiered on 15 September 2009 at the Toronto International Film Festival.
A man gets hit in the head with a bullet that stays in because of a coin flip by a surgeon. Out of work he falls in with a group of trash fixers. When he finds two companies responsible for the arms dealing that leads to his plight he hatches a plan to bring them to justice. This is a very lightweight and humourous comedy about arms trading. The comedy gets close to the ‘Home Alone’ antics, but with a very French sensibility and touch. Lots of fun, crazy characters make this a fun movie and despite the dark undertones, family entertainment.
