"...an elaborate French exercise in cinematic Dadaism."

"[ZAZIE DANS LE METRO] seems the indisputable starting-point of the Swinging 60s, and a particular influence on the films of Richard Lester and The Beatles."
On a visit to her Parisian transvestite uncle, boisterous, vulgar Zazie proves even more outlandish than he. Her adolescent pranks and wide-open mind make for circus-like adventures reminiscent of Curious George and Madeline, and all are rendered with affectionate madness.
A sassy young girl embarks on a madcap Parisian adventure when she visits her transvestite uncle and takes a raucous sightseeing tour of the city. In true slapstick fashion, she encounters various nutty characters and unusual situations, culminating in a food fight in a cafe.
