An innocent feeling of joy
14 November 2005 | by drunk_in_skopjeSee all my reviews

"Foutasies" is one of the best short films I have ever seen, the real basis for watching further Jeunet films. A part of the world that this innovative director creates in this film is later developed in Amelie, so if you liked Amelie, you will like Foutasies as well. In this movie, the director gives you an insight to all likes and dislikes of the protagonist (played beautifully by Pinon) but in a very imaginative well-structured order. While we see Pinon's enjoyments and nightmares in black and white, Jeunet gives fine- crafted representations of innocence of children, fears etc, summarizing them all in a delightful ending. In these 8 minutes of duration, Jeunet will manage to pass a very innocent feeling of joy to you and an instant smile on your face.
