Kelvin lent the 'Delicatessen' DVD a few months back. After all these years, I have finally watched the 1991 Marc Caro and Jean-Pierre Jeunet directed black comedy about a butcher and his tenants. Ha ha ha. A post-holocaust world of a sort where a household had resorted to eating new people under their roof. Then, one day, the butcher's daughter fell in love with a circus clown who had just moved in. The clown was the object of everyone's hunger. Such an eccentric vehicle with a whole range of human emotions, love, humour, malice, hunger, and more. The incredibly well-crafted scenes were magnificient. It's so whimsical unlike the rather contrived and commercial Tim Burton flicks. 7/10.
