Atomik Circus, le Retour de James Bataille Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

True love, motorcycle daredevils, and alien visitation all find their way into this wildly imaginative fantasy, written and directed by [[Performer~P236391~Didier Poiraud~didierpoiraud]] and his brother [[Performer~P236390~Thierry Poiraud~thierrypoiraud]], a pair of comic artists who adapted the story from their own work. James Bataille ([[Performer~P195952~Jason Flemyng~jasonflemyng]]) is in love with Concia ([[Performer~P197354~Vanessa Paradis~vanessaparadis]]), a chanteuse whose father, Bosco ([[Performer~P45465~Jean-Pierre Marielle~jeanpierremarielle]]), runs the only nightspot in the tiny town where they live. The mechanically inclined Bataille attempts to stage an elaborate motorcycle stunt to impress Concia, but when it goes sour, he ends up in prison with a 133-year sentence. Desperate to help Concia and raise some money, Bataille escapes from behind bars to make an appointment to fix the car of music biz tycoon Allan Chiasse ([[Performer~P106701~Benoît Poelvoorde~benoîtpoelvoorde]]). Chiasse's timing may be fortuitous, as Concita is soon to take part in the town's annual talent show, though he's expected to face tough competition from a very unusual dog act. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
