ATTILA MAR­CEL ★★ Di­rected by Syl­vain Chomet. Star­ring Guil­laume Gouix, Anne Le Ny, Ber­nadette La­font, Hélène Vincent

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - CINEMA -

Paul (Gouix) is a pi­ano prodigy who lives with his two maiden aunts in a heav­ily stylised ver­sion of Paris. His life is reg­i­mented un­til he runs into his ec­cen­tric neigh­bour (Le Ny), a witchy her­bal­ist with a brew that, when in­gested while lis­ten­ing to mean­ing­ful mu­sic, con­jures mem­o­ries from the deep­est sub­con­scious. It sounds fun but, sadly, Chomet, di­rec­tor of won­der­ful an­i­ma­tions such as

The Il­lu­sion­ist, fails to trans­late his whimsy into life ac­tion. Club, IFI mem­bers, 102 mins
