April and the Extraordinary World

Synopsis: In 1941, the world is radically different from the one we know from history books. Geopolitics has developed strangely: Napoleon V rules France and, for the last 70 years, scholars have been mysteriously disappearing, depriving mankind of their inventions. Without radio, television, electricity, aviation, and the combustion engine, the world is mired in outdated technology, dozing in the previous century's knowhow dominated by coal and steam. In this bizarre universe, Avril (Marion Cotillard), a teenage girl, Darwin (Philippe Katerine), her talking cat, Pops (Jean Rochefort), her grandfather, and Julius (Marc-André Grondin), a young scoundrel and police informer, go off in search of Avril's parents, two of the missing scientists. The quartet will face many dangers and mysteries in this strange new Rigged World.

to Annette, right?

Do I ever?


they just went in!

The family's all there.

This is it. We can lock them up.

My dear Limousin,

it took us weeks to find them.

We can wait 10 more minutes.

Let me finish my nap, will ya?

Prosper, where on Earth

have you been?

I had to administer

the doses alone.

Firstly, it's Pops.

And second, it's none of your business.

Annette, come on, love.

Let it be.

You can argue

about it later.

It's a big day for us

today. Whew, big day.



Enzymatic integration?

It's good.

Molecular hybridization?



of mutant agent?


Emulsions 1 and 2

for the final mix?

Here they are!

April, this is not

the time.

So now?

Can I mix it now?

My little sparrow, the best

way you can help us

is to sit right here and

not touch anything.

Now, where were we?

Emulsions 1 and 2?

Here they are.

- Hydrostatic pressure?

- Perfect! Volume masses stable.

Stop making

such a sad face.

Come play. It'll be more fun

than this chemistry doom.

Darwin, it's thanks to that

chemistry you can talk.

And you're proud of your parents?

It was a failed experiment.

I was supposed to be

invulnerable but I'm not.

This time, unless

we've slipped up somewhere,

we have created

the Ultimate Serum.

The Ultimate Serum.

All forms of life

will be invulnerable.

Illness, old age, and death

will be things of the past.

Mere memories.

A more admirable goal than

creating invincible soldiers,

isn't it, Grandad?

We made the same

mistakes you did.

But finally, today,

we'll be successful.

Now we can proceed

with the guinea pig test.

Prosper, would you please...

Pops! Call me Pops!

This is Inspector Pizoni!

Imperial Security!

Don't try to escape.

You're surrounded.
