Les aventures extraordinaires d'Adèle Blanc-Sec
Les aventures extraordinaires d'Adèle Blanc-Sec 2010 French film directed by Luc Besson. This is an adventure set in the early part of the 20th century and focused on a popular novelist and her dealings with would-be suitors, the cops, monsters, and other distractions. Desperate to cure her near catatonic sister, intrepid authoress Adèle Blanc-Sec braves ancient Egyptian tombs and modern Egyptian lowlife to locate a mummified doctor and get him back to Paris. Her hope is that oddball Professor Espérandieu will then use his unusual powers to bring the doctor back to life so he, in turn, can use his centuries-old skills on the unfortunate sister. In Paris however Espérandieu is already causing mayhem, having brought to life what was a safe museum egg but is now a very active pterodactyl. Paris 1911 may not be the healthiest place to be. Stars Louise Bourgoin, Mathieu Amalric, Gilles Lellouche and Jean-Paul Rouve. Rated PG for some violence, language, brief nudity and rude humor. In French with optional French or English subtitles. 107 minutes.
