Delicatessen: Directed by Marc Caro, Jean-Pierre Jeunet. With Pascal Benezech, Dominique Pinon, Marie-Laure Dougnac, Jean-Claude Dreyfus. Post-apocalyptic surrealist black comedy about the landlord of an apartment building who occasionally prepares a delicacy for his odd tenants.
“Melding the perfect mixture of the visual grace of a silent film with a modern soundscape and bearing a twenty-first century post-apocalyptic sardonic sense of humor, Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Carou0026#39;s u0026quot;Delicatessenu0026quot; becomes one of the finest contemporary films.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis pitch black comedy delves into cannibalism and oddball romance in the same breath with equal gusto and therefore feels horrific, humorous, and haunting all at once. Every frame is a wonder of detail and originality that reinvigorates even the most jaded and long-time film viewer with the sense of rediscovering the art form. This is film-making in the highest regard worthy of praise, awe, and multiple viewings.”
