Dante 01 - Marc Caro

Marc Caro is a real fav. He teamed with Jeunet for their first few shorts (Bunker of Final Gunshots (worth finding, amazing) and feature films (Delicatessen, City of Lost Children). Jeunet struck out on his own with Alien: Resurrection but Caro was mum (a short or two) until now.

Dante 01 looks intriguing, has that unmistakable "feel" of a Caro film and the plastic face of Dominique Pinon. Rumor has it, however, that the movie is a bit of a mess and has been all but dumped by the distributor. Who knows, Variety gave a good review.

Also: Caro's videos for Indochine's (France's Cure) "Les Tzars" (87) and "Savoure le Rouge" (93). Note: the pre-Alien: Resurrection look of the "Savoure..." vid.
