It is certainly not a thought-provoking movie but a movie to let the imagination fly. Like the early Caro-Jeunet collaborations, "Vidocq" is a dark fantasy for the inner child that still wants to venture in worlds of wonder. This Gothic tale of mystery and suspense is the perfect antidote to the mindless action films of the last decades.
Great use of the green screen! I enjoyed the story-telling method. The choreography in the fight scenes could have used a little work but were still quite entertaining. The characters didn't have too much depth (other than the biographer and Vidocq). AMAZING work on the sets and queuing up camera angles. The whole movie was a bit surreal thanks to the camera work!
