Micmacs a Tire-Larigot

Trailers are an art form in and of themselves.  There is a fine balance to strike between giving your audience a sense of the movie without giving away all of the surprises.  One of the best trailers I’ve seen in a while is for Micmacs a Tire-Larigot (French for "nonstop shenanigans"), a film by Jean-Pierre Jeunet of Amelie fame.  The music is pitch perfect and I love the imagery, colors, even the dang font.  After seeing this, I want to know more about these crazy characters and the story.  Check it out here.
