    One of the most unique post-apocalyptic movie you will ever seen. Totally surreal and I loved every moment of it. Definitely recommended if you are interested in the genre, or in unorthodox french cinema.

    Set in some sort of post-apocalyptic Parisian deli o' the damned, this lunatic's take on the future of man is so delightfully warped that it's impossible to shake it out of your head and go get a decent night's sleep.
  2. There are no characters to care about or remember afterward - just a lot of flashy technique involving decor, some glib allegorical flourishes, and the obligatory studied film-school weirdness.
  3. Delicatessen seems overstuffed at times, unable to digest its own surfeit of jokes, tricks, and surprises.
