Top 10 Movies for Foodies
One of the earlier accomplishments of famed Amélie director, Jean-Pierre Jeunet.
Jean-Pierre Jeunet's brilliant, award-winning black comedy about a post-apocalyptic apartment building that houses a "Delicatessen" signaled great things to come from the first-time writer-director (who later went on to write and direct the wonderful "Amélie" and "A Very Long Engagement"). Teaming with fellow writer-director Marc Caro, Jeunet depicts a twisted world where food is so scarce that a group of very odd people living in a very weird building all depend on the building's owner — a butcher and the delicatessen manager — for their survival. The film offers circus clowns, vegetarian rebels, suicidal beauties, star-crossed lovers and a surreal sensibility that will have you coming back to this dystopian universe for seconds.
