Adele, a redheaded, wisecracking, hard-living adventurer-cum-novelist living in pre-WWI France is on a mission in Egypt. She is attempting to retrieve a sarcophagus and tote it back to Western Europe. She succeeds on both fronts, but runs headfirst into another issue: a Parisian scientist with the power to heal Adele's comatose sister has accidentally let loose an ancient Pterodactyl above the Parisian skies. While a zany detective and a hunter attempt to eliminate the creature.

Quirky, fun, humorous, and outstanding! Although it has its sad moments, it's a fantastic movie and definitely worth watching! :)

Bien apprécié ce film. Léger et emballant. J'abonde avec les commentaires émis par DRSK

Un bon film pour toute la famille! - L'histoire d'une grande aventurière qui n'a peur de rien. Les enfants apprécieront ses prouesses, en plus des dinosaures et des momies qui reviennent à la vie. Les adultes apprécieront les décors, les costumes, les répliques de la belle Adèle et les petites allusions à certains grands moments de l'Histoire.

Light and fun, in the spirit of the Indiana Jones and The Mummy franchises. As always, excellent direction by Luc Besson. (For those not able to follow the dialogue in French, you have the option of turning on English subtitles or watching a dubbed English version.) I wouldn't sit the under-10s down to this (some parts might be a bit scary or hard to understand) but it'd be fine for the rest of the family.

This adventure/fantasy film from French director Luc Besson is a mixed bag. Lead actress Louise Bourgoin is easy to like and the first half of the film was fairly engaging. However, things began to fall apart in the second half of the film which was punctuated with cheap CGI and silly subplots. Still worth a look if you enjoy Besson's work in the past. French with English subtitles.

Fans of Indiana Jones movies would appreciate this French movie. Excellent acting! Full of humour!
I hope to see more of this class of movies in this caliper from France.

Very entertaining romp, with a haughty French female counterpart to Indiana Jones in a surreal adventure involving a pterodactyl, revivified Egyptian mummies and all sorts of goofiness. Worth watching the extras to see what the actors look like under all the prosthetics.

Other: Some brief frontal nudity of Ms. Bourgoin half way through the film. No sexual content.
