From celebrated directors Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Amelie) and Marc Caro (The City of Lost Children), Delicatessen is a surreal dark comedy that has just received a sumptuous new 4K restoration, making its UHD debut thanks to Studioncanal – and we have a copy to give away!
Delicatessen is set in a distant, apocalyptic future, where conventional society has reached a state of collapse. Grain is now used as currency and meat has become a rare commodity. Meanwhile an unemployed clown finds work as a maintenance man in a squalid apartment block situated above a butcher’s shop.
Having fallen in love with the owner’s daughter he soon discovers the sinister truth behind the ominous landlord’s unsavoury intentions. Between blossoming romance and disappearing tenants his only hope for survival could be the members of a subterranean militia of vegetarian freedom fighters. Or is it too late already?
Originally released in 1991, the film is a winner of two César Awards, for Best Debut and Best Screenplay, and nominated for the Best Foreign Film BAFTA, the film stars Dominique Pinon, who would go on to appear in Amélie and The City of Lost Children.
Co-director Jeunet went on to make the box office hit Alien: Resurrection (1997) and the sensational Amélie (2001), starring Audrey Tautou, nominated for five Oscars, winner of two BAFTAs and winner of four French Césars. He also made A Very Long Engagement with Tautou, which was nominated for two Oscars.
This 4K UHD release of the movie includes an audio commentary with director Jean-Pierre Jeunet, a making-of featurette named Fine Cooked Pork Meats, an interview with Jeunet and Caro and more.
