Plot Summary

Avid movie-watcher and video store clerk Bazil has had his life all but ruined by weapons of war. His father was killed by a landmine in Morocco and one fateful night a stray bullet from a nearby shootout embeds itself in his skull, leaving him on the verge of instantaneous death. Losing his job and his home, Bazil wanders the streets until he meets Slammer, a pardoned convict who introduces him to a band of eccentric junkyard dealers including Calculator, a math expert and statistician, Buster, a record-holder in human cannonball feats, Tiny Pete, an artistic craftsman of automatons, and Elastic Girl, a sassy contortionist. When chance reveals to Bazil the two weapons manufacturers responsible for building the instruments of his destruction, he constructs a complex scheme for revenge that his newfound family is all too happy to help set in motion.

Trivia The full title in French - "Micmacs à tire-larigot" - literally means "non-stop shenanigans". See more »
Goofs When the three goons roll their ammunition down a table to decide who will execute De Fenouillet, the rounds roll in a straight line. Since the three of them use 357 magnum revolvers, the rounds have a rim which would make them roll in an arc of a circle. See more »
