In a satisfying confluence of source material and director, Jean-Pierre Jeunet brings his signature abundance to bear on [this] richly stuffed adventure.

With more whimsy than a Wes Anderson wedding - and a clunky third act that potholes the plot - Jeunet's American comeback is beautiful, heart-warming and a bit of a mess.

Like one of its animated 3D asides, the film jumps out at you, twiddles around and then folds itself away into nowhere. It’s all pop-up, no book.

The two adjectives in the title should be replaced with "annoying" and "unendurably tiresome".

Despite its flaws... [this is an] amusing, poignant and visually stunning take on a child prodigy’s attempts to understand his weird family and the even weirder wider world.

For all it boasts in ingenious style, this genial American yarn lacks the delicious bile of Jenuet’s early days.
