By Mark Barry HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 14 Aug. 2012
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

Audrey Tautou stars as a beautiful lady grieving for her loss of husband.
She appears ugly and emerges at the same time as stunningly beautiful.
This is cracking my heart. It is subtle, funny. Watch the contrasts in people, circumstances and why love is blind, going for results...
Her circumstances, work family etc. give an excellent entourage where she finds what she misses, true love.
It seems unlikely for her to love the big Swedish man, but hey, she was desperate, no?
Psycho projection, any man could imagine to reach the heart of "Nathalie". Just imagining is part of watching this movie
Such a beautiful moving film! Delicacy, tender tasteful, a girl to go for.

I did like this film which shows Tautou in a very easy to watch role. Her husband has died and becoming a work-a-holic, she meets a quiet gentle chap, not normally her type...but who like her...and...is prepared to take it from there.

Audrey Tautou is a very capable actress...at home in many roles and always gives a believable performance. I think this is a good film, and good value.

Delicacy is a beautifully told love story, it is a film about loves - parents and grandparents, friends and colleagues, wives and widows.

Audrey Tautou, Pio Marmai and François Damiens - the actors in the roles of the main love stories are superb, as are all of the supporting cast including Ariane Ascaride in the role of La mere de Nathalie. The film wouldn't be what it is without the brilliant part that François Damiens plays and yet he doesn't make an appearance for the first half-an-hour or so of the film.

The story develops in a very realistic way and is all the better for it. The humour in the film is subtle gentle and realistic.

The film is based on the best selling novel La Délicatesse by David Foenkinos and is directed by the author, so presumably this is the image the author wanted us to envisage from the written page.

I would be hard pushed to find anything to fault about this film. The acting, the directing, the cinematography, the music - all work to make a really beautiful film.

The extras on the DVD include Bloopers, Deleted Scenes and a Trailer.

An album called Franky Knight by Emilie Simon, is the soundtrack to the film.

Ariane Ascaride has a minor role as the mother of Audrey Tautou's character, I watched her, in a leading role in the film A Common Thread [DVD]recently where she played the part of a woman who had lost her son in a motorbike accident, so it was interesting to see her in the role of a mother of a bereaved daughter, two very different films, but I would recommend them to anyone who appreciates Non-Hollywood films.
