Apparently all in French, but that's okay, right?

Also, that is an entirely charming little film. Things got dusty and then they got dusty again and I really should hire a housecleaning company.

The tricycle was creepy, IMHO. Rod Serling would be proud.

I did find all the implied slaughter of those who stood in the tricycle's way to be a bit disturbing.

"Shot on smartphones!". Technically, yes. Gondry has been very honest about how the movie was made and it was obviously fun to do but still: it required a bunch of "additional hardware and software" (grips, steadicam, filters, external microphone, Avid software) and a 20-people crew that included a experienced DP with 50 movie credits.

Man, these autonomous vehicle AIs... it's almost as if they can... feel.
