I couldn't remember if I had ever seen the movie Delicatessen, so we ordered it from Netflix and watched it this evening. Once it began, I did remember that I had seen it before, but it had been so long ago, I was happy to watch it again.
Delicatessen takes place in a post apocalyptic world where a landlord and his tenants struggle to survive. Bits of humor break up the horror of the situation while inventive set design and surrealistic scenes make this a film not to miss.
A rather dark comedy, it is the first film of director Jeunet and designer/illustrator Caro ~ they also made The City of Lost Children ~ another film worth viewing. Jeunet also directed the movie Amelie as well as A Very Long Engagement.
See what you think ~ give Delicatessen a try!
