The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec is a French fantasy adventure, a lot like Indiana Jones, but has a woman as the protagonist.
It tells the story of Adele, archeologist, who is trying to save her catatonic sister by finding Rameses’ doctor and having a scientist wake him up. The scientist, in the meanwhile, has inadvertently woke up a dinosaur, which is rampaging through Paris, simple?!
The film is directed by Luc Besson who really does have the comedy perfectly timed and the action well paced. He has some fantastic characters, all who have mighty fashioned moustaches, the best of which is Chief Inspector Caponi who reminds me of Droopy a little. It’s a just a great adventure and comes highly recommended.
Oooh, should just add, fantastic costumes and photography of Paris.
