4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best works Audrey Tautou has done since Amelie, 21 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Delicacy [DVD] (DVD)
I've just watched it, and first of all, I'm really impressed with Audrey Tatou's acting skills. I've seen most of her films, and I think she's very good, impressive and convincing. This is a romantic comedy but not a crazy kind with too many things happen in one go, but it has some very sensitive elements and emotions that she shows at some parts are very good - I've almost fallen in love with her! For example, in Beautiful Lies [DVD] (2010) although it was a pleasant and light film (I liked the atmosphere throughout though), I thought the role Tautou played was slightly too serious for no apparent reason for a romantic comedy, and for this reason it wasn't easy to feel at ease in depth. However, to me 'Delicacy' is one of the best comedies Tautou has done since Amelie [DTS] [DVD]. There are more than a few scenes I had to go back, after watching it through once, and paused it to appreciate it more properly, for example when Tautou was crying quietly in the back of the car or in her living room, as she was so convincing, and this kind of acting will make good, professional actors from not-so-convincing pretty-faced 'actors' on TV. Tautou is obviously the former one, I was easily drawn into the plot. The way it ends is also very nice and artistic, and it is almost like a Japanese novel that completely leaves what happens next to the viewers' imaginations. She was gazing at the camera for good ten seconds and was very cleaver, artistic and beautiful! Wow! The male actor who played Markus, the Swedish guy, was also very good, and I'd like to see more of him going forward.

In addition to this, the photography was very impressive too, and colourist has done a great job too! Especially the scene Tautou was walking in the railway station next to the blue train was really beautiful as well as the scene she drives through the oilseed rape field was such a pleasant view too!

Hope you like it too (and Merry Christmas)!
