The City of lost Children is a wonderful little gem of a film by the same director of Amelie, it has everything, terrifying Santas, dictatorial floating brains, sinister conjoined twins, alcoholics, highly trained fleas, floating mines, it is often referred to as a 'Steampunk' film, it definitely has the aesthetic
Look how cute Miette is! and what an adorable name!
Good old Uncle Irvin, nothing like disembodied control freaks
The twins, known simply in the film as 'the octopus'
If you like the book Geek Love by Katherine Dunn (quite possibly an all time favourite), there's a vibe to this film that reminds me of it, you won't be disappointed.
