To me, this movie does what movies are for: activate the imagination. In this case, touching a theme not as alien as one might wish it to be in a fantastic setting.
The 'fantastic' way in which people and institutions appear is far from random; it feels to me like a hyperdream of familiar entities and sensations, their logical extreme. Rich, vivid imagination which enters your brain and puts hooks in it. Loved the book and Gondry made it even more alive for me. Quite a feat. If you do like the movie, please check out the book and also other titles by Vian. Don't want to generalize too much but if you like movies by Terry Gilliams you will probably like this a lot, too.
Rats, writing reviews is hard and I'm not very good at it; but i so disagree with the IMDb-grade for this film currently 5. So please go see this film and find out for yourself!
