An eccentric toymaker's last wish is that his brother takes over the running of the business. The brother is a military General, and is out of touch with toymaking, and out of touch with reality too. The business should really have been given to Leslie, who was much more like his toymaking father. When the General starts making weapons instead of toys, Leslie decides to take action.Written by
Much of the look draws its inspiration from surrealist painter René Magritte. This is most obvious in the break in scene where Leslie and Alsatia pretend they're doing a music video featuring raining men in the background. See more »
In the arcade scene, a cabinet of the Konami shoot 'em up Lightning Fighters is shown. However, upon seeing the game itself, it is actually the Sega flight simulator Strike Fighter. See more »
This film was like the 311 song. Barry Levinson does know how to direct. I loved "Tin Men", "Diner", "Wag The Dog",etc. This film is visually dazzling. Fernandino Scarfiotti's design WILL blow you away. A lot of people HATED this movie. I liked it's stunning visuals and sweet moments. Watch the film. Decide for yourself.
