Delicatessen (Jean-Pierre Jeunet & Marc Caro, France 1992)


It’s hard to imagine what a post-apocalyptic romantic comedy about cannibalism would look like until you see Delicatessen. Ingenious, bizarre, visually stunning and an instant cult classic – comedy doesn’t get much darker than this.

"Part macabre horror, part romantic drama, part childlike fable, this ingeniously original French film defies categorization, but is successful on all of these levels, which may explain why it has become an international cult classic."
Emanuel Levy

"Increasingly inventive as it progresses, Jeunet and Caro's fast, funny feature debut entertains from sinister start to frantic finish."
