Summary: The film started off a bit slow but then picked up and ended up being a really enjoyable film. It's not perfect by any means but there are some good characters and interesting filming and It made a nice change from formulated American films!
Summary: as per usual I got a damaged Blu-ray from love film, the bits that I could watch seemed sentimental in bad French way. I thought Audrey Tautou was miscast as a young woman. It's a bit like the way Americans used to cast Doris Day as a young girl about town when she was well past it.
Summary: Some people find French films slow and too ironic or surreal. Maybe? However, French films have a different take on how to present the emotional life of a person's shared joys and sorrows. I found this film to be touching and beautiful and its topic- bereavement and friends trying to support the bereaved, is one I can relate to from experience. This film has laughs and genuine PATHOS and that's what few films actually ever arise to.
Summary: 'Delicacy' isn't a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination - but nowadays is that rarest of digital beasts - a 'kind' film - a gently unfolding love story about two polar opposites who need to give each other a chance... But therein lies some of this French movie's problems with critics and audiences alike (never mind the English subtitles).
