The war footage looks sweet. With similar cinematography that was applied
to Amelie, only good things can happen.
Jean-Pierre Jeunet has a new movie coming out that
looks stylishly cool with the elements of love and war thrown into one.
For those of you who do not recognize Jean-Pierre Jeunet, this is the director
that created the sensational Amelie. Like Amelie, A Very Long Engagement
seems to have some really cool cinematography.
