Win French Classic DELICATESSEN 4K UHD Blu-ray

Written By:


The superb surreal dystopian horror comedy Delicatessen (1996) is getting a 4K UHD Blu-ray release from Studiocanal, and we have a copy to give away to one lucky reader. Just read on and enter below…

Directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro, Delicatessen is set in a distant, apocalyptic future, conventional society has reached a state of collapse. Grain is now used as currency, and meat has become a rare commodity. Meanwhile, an unemployed clown finds work as a maintenance man in a squalid apartment block situated above a butcher’s shop.

Having fallen in love with the owner’s daughter, he soon discovers the sinister truth behind the ominous landlord’s unsavoury intentions. Between blossoming romance and disappearing tenants, his only hope for survival could be the members of a subterranean militia of vegetarian freedom fighters. Or is it too late already?

With its iconic, surreal imagery, gallows humour, and its cast of warped characters, Delicatessen marked the breakthrough collaboration between celebrated directors Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Amélie) and Marc Caro (Dante 01). Equal parts horror, comedy and dystopian fantasia, Delicatessen is still one of the most original and influential films of its time.

Winner of two César Awards, for Best Debut and Best Screenplay, and nominated for the Best Foreign Film BAFTA, the film stars Dominique Pinon, who would go on to appear in Amélie and The City of Lost Children (as well as episodes of The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon).

Co-director Jeunet went on to make the box office hit Alien: Resurrection (1997) and the sensational Amélie (2001), starring Audrey Tautou, nominated for five Oscars, winner of two BAFTAs and winner of four French Césars. He also made A Very Long Engagement with Tautou, which was nominated for two Oscars.

Included with Delicatessen:

Audio commentary with director Jean-Pierre Jeunet
Making of: Fine Cooked Pork Meats
Main Course Pieces
Jean-Pierre Jeunet Archive
Interview with Jeunet and Caro
