Biography

The artist and comic book designer, Marc Caro switched to filmmaking in the early 1980s and formed a writing and directing partnership with Jean-Pierre Jeunet which has produced two visually striking, complex and somewhat impenetrable features: "Delicatessen" (1991), a fantasy about cannibalism, and "La cite des enfants perdu/The City of Lost Children" (1995), a phantasmagoric fairy tale. Both were greatly enhanced by the visual and sound effects, production and costume designs and score. Caro and Jeunet divide the directing responsibilities with the former handling the artistic matters and the latter guiding the actors.
