|A Monster in Paris (2011)|
Although the film did not have the hilarity of some family films, I found myself entertained and absorbed for the whole ninety minutes. This gem of a film is full of little laughs that keep you on your toes and is rich in romance; not only in the way it looks but in the way it sounds. The operatic qualities of the film are captured in the beautiful vocal performances and instrumental arrangements that flow from the screen throughout A Monster in Paris.The film tells the story of a science experiment gone wrong which leads to the creation of a giant flee that roams nineteen twenties Paris. The merging of genres will not only entertain a younger audience but hold the attention of an adult audience too. A Monster in Paris occasionally feels like a piece of theatre. It owes some credit to The Phantom of the Opera without a doubt and, in the same way, makes us feel for our anti hero.
A Monster in Paris is simply a heart-warming piece of family feature film-making, fun for all the family and a perfect way to spend a cold February afternoon. Go and watch it, you’ll smile all the way through.
