From Jean-Pierre Jeunet, the director of AMELIE comes THE CITY OF LOST CHILDREN. One of the most unique and visually stunning films in years, the film concerns a malevolent scientist who attempts to unlock the mystery of dreaming. Old and decrepit Krank has lost his capacity for dreaming and is attempting to fight death by stealing the dreams of children. Krank's cadre of cloned henchmen snatch 5-year-old Denree to subject him to the horrific dream-retrieval process. The boy's father, One (Ron Perlman), the hulking strongman of a traveling circus, and his precocious 9-year-old friend, Miette, join forces to defeat Krank's minions and save Denree.
