A Film is at its basic, images and movement; it reaches the senses with sight and sound.
The Director is the author of a film, their composter of the music, and the conductor of its performance; he must pull the artist and craft folks together with them working as one for a result, that flickers to life on screen.
Marc Caro & Jean-Pierre Jeunet are the composter and conductor of this wonderful film. A film full of colors, images, and sounds that are mixed together to create a mesmerizing journey.
Delicatessen is a one of a kind flim that mixes genres as well as it mixes the senses.
Domininque Pinon as the handyman, has a the perfect face for this film, where his past life as a clown certainly helps here! The rest of the cast is near perfect with the great Jean Claude Dreyfus as the butcher at the top of his game.
Inserting a pet peeve here:
Most reviewers of this film and films like Delicatessen call this a post-apocalyptic society-
Apocalyptic- "pertaining to the imminent end of the world"
so if it’s the imminent end of the world there cannot be a post imminent end of the world!
Anyway, Delicatessen is set in a strange future world where food is hard to come by, written by Comic book genius Gillies Adrein, he has created a strange wonderful world that is beautliful and gross, that is all fun that really will be a feast for your eyes and ears, but maybe not for your stomach!
