If you live in France, there is no way you could not know Les aventures extraordinaires d’Adele Blanc-Sec opens today. Louise Bourgoin (playing Adèle Blanc-Sec) and Luc Besson are on every channel, promoting the film. Even Max Dana posted about it on her Blog; so we had to add our small contribution to the buzz for our dear Sama Readers living abroad and who may not already know about the last movie produced by EuropaCorp.
The plot (from IMDb): An adventure set in the early party of the 20th century and focused on a popular novelist and her dealings with would-be suitors, the cops, monsters, and other distractions. Some of us have seen the movie and loved it, we appreciated the performance of the actors (Mathieu Amalric, Gilles Lellouche) and the Steampunk-inspired scenery. Besson and Steampunk? No question why the movie caught Max‘s attention!
You can visit the official website of Adele Blanc-Sec and watch the trailer (with English subtitles).
Too bad you can’t see it – yet – abroad! 🙂
