“Gregoire Moulin vs. Humanity” (2001) is a French romantic comedy starring and directed by the late Artus de Penguern. The film is a spoof of Amélie, which was released the same year and also featured Artus (who played the character Hipolito). While the world of Amélie was charming and magical, the world of Gregoire Moulin is cruel and twisted (though filmed in a similar visually striking manner). The films also play on the conventional romantic comedy plot structure in which two quirky characters find eachother against seemingly insurmountable odds.
