The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec...

AKA Les aventures extraordinaires d'Adèle Blanc-Sec, which turned out to be my fave French movie, right after Amélie :D

It's a movie based on a comic (I think) and it follows the adorable journalist Adèle Blanc-Sec in early 20th century France. In the beginning of the movie she goes to Egypt to find herself some artifacts and when she comes back home it turns out that a pterodactyl's using Paris as it's backyard. I don't want to give away too many details about the story because I really think that anyone that's into movies like Indiana Jones or the Librarian should watch this :D Also, if you like Amélie you should watch this as well, not just because they're both French movies, but because the way they're filmed (and the humor) is very similar.

The story's a bit messy at times, but the dialogues, costumes and just overall cuteness make up for that big time.
