Now that we're back to Sci-Fi, here are a few interesting...French Science Fiction Films
3 films by Enki Bilal (out of the 3 he has made so far!):Bunker Palace Hôtel
(1996)Immortel (ad vitam)
They are all rather bizarre but very artistic.La jetée
Director: Chris Marker. This is the short film that inspired Twelve Monkeys. Filmed as a sequence of photographs. Strange and unforgettable.Eden Log
Dir: Franck Vestiel. Strange film, but I liked it (much more than its ratings would suggest).Chrysalis
Dir: Julien Leclercq. Crime thriller with SF underpinnings. I found it complex but neat.La soupe aux choux
(1981) (aka The cabbage soup)
Director: Jean Girault. One of the last films with Louis de Funès, also starring Jean Carmet and Jacques Villeret. More a comedy than SF, but it's nice either way.Barbarella
Dir: Roger VadimLa cité des enfants perdus
(aka The City of Lost Children) (1995)
Directors: Marc Caro, Jean-Pierre Jeunet. Absolutely delightful.
I also love
(1991) but it's not exactly Sci-Fi.
And if you're wondering why I haven't mentioned Alphaville
, well, that's because I have this medical condition known as Godard-intolerance.
