User Score: 60/100


A scientist in a surrealist society kidnaps children to steal their dreams, hoping that they slow his aging process.

This is the story of One (Ron Perlman) and a young girl he meets, Meite who helps him try to find Little Brother who was kidnapped by a religious group called The Cyclops who take their own site in order to see more… The Cyclops take the children they kidnap and bring them to this wierd guy named Krank who tries to steal their dreams but his evil always corupts their dreams and so he doesnt get what he wants. This movie is so crazy but good. This is a French movie with English subtitles, so you kinda have to do the whole read and watch type of thing, which makes it hard to focus and you can easily get lost. This is one of those movies you have to pay attention to. I tried, and it from what I understood it was pretty good. The sets and the camera work was really really good, the acting is excellent, I was completely satisfied with this one. Really wierd, but hey, it’s French.
