A Monster in Paris: Character Bios

Mar 27, 2013

A wacky inventor, his camera-crazy best friend and a madcap monkey make a massive mistake when let loose in a mad scientist’s laboratory. With lotions and potions spilling everywhere, the troublesome trio accidentally creates Franc, the product of a reaction between a common flea and one of the scientist’s mystery concoctions. What they fail to realize, however, is that this ‘monster’ is actually a soft-centered soul with an astounding talent for music.

With the help of an enchanting nightclub singer Lucille, Franc becomes the talk of the town, just as stories of Paris’s newest monster attract the attention of the egotistical police commissioner, hell bent on securing a big prize to help his battle to become mayor. The unwitting scientists and the singer must team up to protect Franc, a monster with more than a musical career to protect!

Character Bios:

Emile (Jay Harrington)

Unlike the characters in the films he screens in his little movie theater, Emile is anything but an adventure hero. Shy and awkward, he's a dreamer who can't bring himself to tell Maud, the young woman he meets every day at the theater entrance, that he loves her. But, for better or for worse, Emile is always there for his best friend Raoul when he sets off on another of his crazy escapades!

Francoeur (Sean Lennon)

Originally Francoeur was a miniscule flea living peacefully on the back of Charles, the monkey who assists the botanist at the Zoological Gardens. During a reckless experiment, however, Raoul turns him into a gigantic 2-meter tall flea! Who soon strikes terror into the citizens of Paris, causing Commissioner Maynott to come gunning for him. Françoeur conceals his monstrous appearance behind a wonderful singing voice and a heart of gold.

Lucille (Vanessa Paradis)

The star of The Rare Bird cabaret, Lucille is a pretty and feisty songstress from Montmartre. Ever since she lost her parents aged 9, she has lived with her Aunt Carlotta, who's keen for Lucille to respond favorably to the advances of larger-than-life Police Commissioner Maynott. But, Lucille prefers independence and despite her fame, she leads a lonely existence that might all change when she meets up once more with Raoul, an annoying but oh-so charming childhood friend.

Raoul (Adam Goldberg)

A charmer, a show-off, a big-mouth... Raoul is an incorrigible ladies' man. But his only real friends are shy Emile and Catherine, as he has named the delivery van he has skillfully turned into a vehicle James Bond would be happy to call his own. Streetwise and resourceful, Raoul is a self-made man and proud of it. Like Lucille, he lives in Montmartre. No matter how much he protests that he hates her, he can't help falling under her spell every time they meet.

Maynott (Danny Huston)

Commissioner Maynott is an important man. At least, he would like to think so. Criticized for his mishandling of the flood, he is trying to regain popularity prior to campaigning for election as mayor of Paris. When Francoeur appears on the scene, it's the perfect chance for this ambitious, unscrupulous man to lead a spectacular monster-hunt and show everyone that he is a man for a crisis.

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

"It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

“Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.' But I like the inconveniences.' We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.' But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.' In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence. I claim them all,' said the Savage at last. Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”
