Delicatessen/City of Lost Children/Bunker of the last gunshots.
on 13 May 2013
I'm a big fan of Jean-Pierre Jeunet's films. He has my eternal gratitude for AMELIE, MICMACS, and THE VERY LONG ENGAGEMENT. I could hardly resist buying this DVD. With my expectations so high I was almost sure to be disappointed...and I was...slightly. Delicatessen has all the hallmarks and oddities of the films mentioned above, it didn't quite hit the bulls-eye for me, but was still very enjoyable. Much the same goes for City of Lost Children. They needn't have bothered with Bunker of the last gunshots. So...not quite the gem I was hoping for, but still pretty good.
