SF Chronicle: Jeunet Honored by Mill Valley Film Festival

By Indiewire | Indiewire October 13, 2005 at 11:08AM

"Amelie" director Jean-Pierre Jeunet [will] receive some attention at the Mill Valley Film Festival. "A tribute for me?" the 52-year-old says incredulously, with a laugh. "I just started yesterday." It is true that Jeunet, who once made music videos and short films, has directed only five feature films. But each of them -- "Delicatessen" (1991), "The City of Lost Children" (1995), "Alien: Resurrection" (1997), "Amelie" (2001) and "A Very Long Engagement" (2004) -- has acquired a cult following, a true tribute to a director who is hailed around the world for his distinctive and engaging style of fantastical filmmaking. John McMurtrie reports.
