Delicatessen (rewatch)

Posted by martinteller on September 27, 2010

I keep wavering on this movie, and I really wasn’t sure if I should have bought it (as evidenced by the fact that it took me so long to get around to it).  There are so many wonderful little moments, heaps of inventive craftsmanship, and an awful lot of charm.  But it also can be rather overbearing and needs a bit more heart.  This would be achieved in spades with Amelie, and from the behind-the-scenes features on the Blu-Ray, it seems the overdose of whimsy in this movie was largely to due to Marc Caro’s influence.  As I’ve said before, it’s a movie where you really have to let yourself go with the flow.  If you’re not in the mood for “quirky”, it’d probably drive you crazy.  Rating: 8
