You’ve never seen Paris like this before. Antoine Delacharlery’s animated film isn’t just a close-up of the French metropolis; it’s as if it puts Paris under a microscope. The urban organism with its inventory of streets, buildings and open spaces as well as the people, trains and cars moving about among them comes across like a concatenation of pale cells and nerve fibers. Full of spooky, spectral scenes populated by a cast of the apparently undead, Ghost Cell seems like the hybrid spawn of a scientific documentary and an apocalyptic dream.
