City of Lost Children (La CitÃ© des enfants perdus). Dir Jean-Pierre Jeunet & Marc Caro, 1995
Visually stunning film from the makers of 'Delicatessen' and 'Amelie'. The mad scientist Krank is unable to dream, and therefore tries to steal the dreams of children. The problem is that because they fear him, the only dreams he is able to steal are nightmares.
