Product Description

Triple bill of movies from the cult French directors Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro. In 'Delicatessen' (1990), in a burnt-out city on the verge of collapse, a canny butcher (Jean-Claude Dreyfus) employs various young handymen, kills them, and then sells them as meat. When ex-circus performer Louison (Dominique Pinon) arrives looking for work, it seems that his head will be the next on the block. But Louison falls in love with Julie (Marie-Laure Dougnac), the butcher's daughter, and together they join forces with an underground vegetarian group who plan to bring an end to the butcher's cruel regime. 'The City of Lost Children' (1995) is set on a futuristic oil rig, where a man, Krank (Daniel Emilfork), has aged prematurely because he has lost the ability to dream. To reverse the ageing process he kidnaps children from the local harbour town so that he can steal their dreams. Finally, 'The Bunker of the Last Gunshots' (1981) is a short film about a group of soldiers living in a bleak futuristic world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Visually stylistic adult fairy tales 25 Feb 2011
Format:DVD
Two wonderful French films that I am sure will stay in your imagination for years to come.
I believe these films are as good if not better than Guillermo Del Toro's civil war fairy tale fantasies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jeunot and Caro - true originals 5 Aug 2010
By pegleg

Stuck on the sofa after a knee op I ordered a few DVDs for a French cinema session. We had seen Delicatessen a couple of times before and found it really funny with echos of Brazil. This collection and MicMacs confirmed just how quirky these guys are! Its a whole other world they create and they present it beautifully. Very entertaining. I really need to watch carefully more than once to really sort out the plot properly. If you like unusual then these films will certainly tickle your fancy. Tres marrant, super!

5.0 out of 5 stars 3 for 1 26 Aug 2010
Format:DVD
I really enjoyed Amelie and found myself wanting to watch more of Jean-pierre's work. I had borrowed Delicatessen from a friend and I decided that this was a great offer to have 3 films form the him. The short film is not my cuppa tea but the other 2 are great and so for the price you cant complain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer brilliance 16 Oct 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Classic films with music scores to die for! These bear watching over and over again. - possibly bordering on the sureal so may not be to everyone's taste (especially "Delicatessen"). The acting is superb throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars why don't they make them like this anymore 15 April 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When you see classic Cinema like this it just makes you want to see more and more, It's when you see films such as these you realise how fortunate we are to want to be individual as countries so thoughts and styles will remain so different.

4.0 out of 5 stars Craftsman and Visionary 30 April 2012
By AP
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Here is a team with vision and skill. The products are extraordinary, modern twists on sci-fi and fantasy, utilising all that is wonderful about French film, but with so much more. Delicatessen, need it be said, is absolute genius, and it is this flick that made me gamble on the other two. A sensible move; I was always a bit 'standoffish' with 'Lost Children', but after another watch, and now seeing where it came from, i.e. off the back of 'Bunker', I am a fan. These flicks will entertain me many times, and I've not even yet contemplated any DVD extras there might be (apologies for setting hopes high if there are none). Sit back for some wonderful quasi-diverse cinema.
