From the directorial team of The City of Lost Children and the director of Amelie comes their breakout cult hit Delicatessen, a black comedy of the darkest order. Somewhere in postapocalyptic France, Louison (an ex-clown) has just moved into a ratty apartment to replace a mysteriously vanished tenant and takes up a job working in the deli on the floor of his building. Soon he discovers his neighbours are stranger than his circumstances, and he reveals the horrible secret of Clapet the butcher. Metro Bizarro is proud to present the closest the series will ever get to a sweet romantic comedy and the only film where the clown is the least terrifying character.

Rating: 14A (14A)
