Reviews

Nathalie (Audrey Tatou) is living her dream life until her husband dies in an accident. To cope with her loss, she focuses on work and leaves little room for another romance. She is brought out of mourning three years later when a shy and dorky co-worker Markus vies for her attention. Nathalie discovers that even though she lost “the one”, if she keeps her heart open there may just be room for one more

Format: Blu-ray
"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). We're essentially being asked to believe what some would say is absurd - after the loss of her ludicrously handsome and beloved husband Francois (Pio Marmai) - the swanlike beauty Nathalie Kerr (Audrey Tautou) then falls in love with the office klutz - the balding cardigan-wearing Swedish clerk Markus Lundl (Francois Damiens). And of course in the real world - no such thing would happen. But I'd argue that David and Stephane Foenkinos' movie is better than that...

"La Delicatesse" (the original French title) isn't a rom-com or even a comedy as the trailer clumsily tries to portray - it's rather more serious than that. It's a journey from heartbreak back to hope - and it's done with class and a deliberately languid pace. It comes with the usual office dynamics - the already-married boss Charles (Bruno Todeschini) consumed with the widowed prize he can't have - the gossiping secretary Chloe (a shockingly gorgeous Melanie Bernier) and outside of work - friends and their nosey partners who don't rate the social status of Nathalie's new male acquisition (and he's not even that pretty either).

Speaking of physical beauty and its grip on our world in 2011 - the script has a go at these social hypocrisies and often succeeds. But I was more impressed with other sublime and touching moments...

CHARMING
========
"A new romantic comedy about Love, Fate and other Delicacies. "
The author of the book Delicacy also wrote and directed this charming film.

AUDREY
======
Audrey Tautou is one of the most impressive comic actresses that graces our screens. I had come across her co-star in the very funny heartbreaker film Heartbreaker (L'arnacoeur) [DVD] (2010) and thought he was equally impressive.
Here, Audrey plays a widow who concentrates on work to distract her from her grief. Three years on, Damiens bounces into her life.

DAMIENS
=======
They both know when to overplay and underplay their respective roles and their comic timing is perfect.
Audrey is dynamic and full of energy whilst comedian, Francois Damiens plays her sleepy counterpart.
The film is slow to begin with, and picks up it's pace when Damiens bumbles onto the screen.
Although initially you wouldn't put Ms Tautou and Mr Damiens together, the chemistry works.
Funny, charming, thoughtful and not a straightforward 'chick-flick'

RECOMMENDED
===========

It's my favourite movie! The soundtrack alone is stunning and the story is sweet with fantastic acting by all actors!
The subtle way the film introintroduces characters is also great and the script is witty and thoughtful!
don't be put off by subtitles!
Buy it now!

Ce film me fait pleurer chaque fois que je le regarde. The start is so sweet and you fall in love with her husband and you wish so badly for their happily ever after. Plus tard, l'homme swede vous faire tomber amoreux avec lui. It's a heart warming film and I love Tautou.

What a wonderful little gem of a story. Audrey Tatou is spellbinding as ever and Francois Damiens have great chemistry. If u like lots of explosions and drama this film is not for you, but if you enjoy great acting and subtle storylines you will love it!

A rather quirky, sweet, gently funny film, which felt very French (as opposed to the rather sickening version you might have got from Hollywood). We really enjoyed it.

Very French, very quirky, unexpected. It's an honest look at grief and survival. Lots of great outfits and shoes as well!
