Talkie Tuesdays: The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec

Talkie Tuesdays: The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec

The setting: France and Egypt 1912, luxurious interiors, can-can dancers, lovely buildings

The characters: Adele and her several identitiesHer Comatose SisterThe Magic ScientistA gaggle of MummiesAnd oh, a pterodactyl.

Needless to say, this movie has a lot of story and a lot of great costumes. It is a sci-fi historical fantasy with a strong female lead. It’s a French film so if you’re one to be nit-picky about subtitles, skip it, and come back when you grow up. Recommended? Highly.
