  • Delicatessen (1991)

FP095: “Nobody is entirely evil: it’s circumstances that make them evil, or they don’t know they are

Jeunet and Caro's delightful delicacy "Delicatessen" is arguably the best post-apocalyptic cannibal comedy—ever. Combining a singular look, hearkening back to the silent era of great European cinema, with a wild and ultimately touching story of a clown, a girl and a butcher, "Delicatessen" does what perfect movies do—it pulls you in and, just for a time, removes you from your hum-drum existence.
