Delicatessen Returns to the Midnight Movie at The Sunshine
The fabulous French film Delicatessen will grace the screen at The Sunshine Cinema this weekend in the midnight time slot on Friday and Saturday. The film was directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro (creators of The City of Lost Children and Amélie) and is a funky version (in my opinion) of Sweeney Todd. Told in a totally unique style, which they claim to be a tribute to Terry Gilliam — but nobody makes films like Juenet and Caro — the story is touted as a “wonderfully macabre comedy about an enterprising butcher’s solution to meat shortages” (and is set in a post-apocalyptic France of an ambiguous time period). It’s a timeless classic that I guarantee is even better when viewed on the big screen.
