If you like your Egyptology spiced up with comic book fantasy, then you might enjoy French filmmaker Luc Besson's latest film Les aventures extraordinaires d'Adèle Blanc-Sec (The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec). Apparently, it's also known as Adele: Rise of the Mummy in Malaysia and Singapore.
Based on a Franco-Belgian comics series, written and illustrated by French comics artist Jacques Tardi, Les aventures extraordinaires d'Adèle Blanc-Sec is set in Paris in 1912 where a certain Professor Espérandieu hatches a 136 million year old pterodactyl egg within the Museum of Natural History which subsequently wreaks havoc on Paris.
Our heroine, Adèle Blanc-Sec, a journalist, finds herself involved in all this after returning from Egypt where she started a quest to find the Pharaoh's mummified doctor. She intends to revive the mummy - apparently - resurrection of Ramesses II – with the help of professor Espérandieu in order to save her sister, Agathe, who is in a coma following an unfortunate incident.
