It's a very tiny quibble that never detracts while watching the film, but it's a feeling that keeps creeping up on me as time goes by.

I clearly prefer this film over Amélie, if only for the darker and freakier setting.

If you're a fan of Delicatessen and you haven't seen The City of Lost Children it's really a no-brainer.

Think Amélie but with a darker, more adventurous and boyish edge. It's a good 100 minutes of fun in a recognizable but still outlandish version of Paris, hosted by a gang of endearing weirdos.
