Cannes 2011: The Prodigies Review

An enormous wasted opportunity. That is the best way to sum up Antoine Charreyron's The Prodigies, an animated feature with an intriguing premise but a horrible, horrible script that doesn't know what sort of movies it wants to be for what sort of audience and collapses entirely under a ridiculously over complicated plot and complete lack of character development.No. I did not like this movie. At all.The story goes like this. We begin with Jimbo as a young teen. He's an obviously intelligent young man but stuck in an abusive home and it takes just moments before his father is throwing his mother down the stairs and laying the belt on to Jimbo - an act of violence that flashes to white and somehow...

Watch Trailer For French Animated Sci-Fi Flick “The Prodigies”

It’s a French animated feature titled The Prodigies (aka La Nuit des Enfants Rois), directed by Antoine Charreyron.

Its story goes… NYC, Central Park, 2010. Five young teenagers are violently assaulted. But they’re not your average teenagers… they’re prodigies. The trauma of the assault incites them to lash out against the world in a cold and calculating way in the name of revenge. The only person aware of their plan is Jimbo Farrar, a sixth prodigy, who has gathered them, and who fights against the other 5, in order to prevent a world disaster of apocalyptic proportions.

Warner Bros France is responsible for this, so I suppose it’s only a matter of time before we see a live-action North American remake??? At the very least, we’ll probably see a subtitled, or English-dubbed version soon enough.

It’s supposed to have already been released in France, last month specifically.

However, the only film confirmed is Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris which will open the fest. The rest is simply speculation and rumor, but now the most comprehensive and seemingly "in the know" list has surfaced.

Of the films currently expected to hit the Croisette, but obviously in no way confirmed yet seem to be among the most likely, are Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life, Pedro Almodovar's The Skin I Live In, Gus Van Sant's Restless and Lars von Trier's Melancholia.

Of course, those are the big name features. The films that draw the
