o celebrate the release of THE CITY OF LOST CHILDREN – released on 4K UHD, Blu-ray & DVD 3rd April – we have a 4K UHD up for grabs!
THE CITY OF LOST CHILDREN, in a spectacular new 4K restoration, and making its UHD debut, is a dazzling fantasy adventure from Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro, creators of the critically acclaimed 1991 cult hit Delicatessen. They bring their surreal vision to the story of Krank, a tormented scientist who sets about kidnapping local children in order to steal their dreams and so reverse his accelerated ageing process. When Krank’s henchmen kidnap his brother, local fisherman and former circus strongman One (Hellboy’s Ron Perlman) sets out on a journey to Krank’s nightmarish laboratory, accompanied by a little orphan girl called Miette (Judith Vittet).
With stunning visuals from Oscar-nominated cinematographer Darius Khondji (Se7en, Evita), costumes from Jean Paul Gaultier (The Fifth Element) and a haunting score by Angelo Badalamenti (Twin Peaks, Mulholland Dr.) featuring Marianne Faithfull, THE CITY OF LOST CHILDREN cemented Jeunet and Caro’s reputation as filmmakers with a unique vision. Production designer Jean Rabasse won the prestigious César in 1996 for his stunning work on this film, while the film was nominated for the Palme d’Or at the 1995 Cannes Film Festival.
THE CITY OF LOST CHILDREN is a unique and marvellously entertaining sci-fi fantasy, visually ravishing and superbly conceived, that Mondo Digital describes as “consistently breathtaking, and for anyone inclined towards the films of Terry Gilliam and David Lynch, provides enough delights on every possible level to reward multiple viewings.”
