Delicatessen

This one was directed by the same guy who did Amelie. It's set in a post-apocalyptic world where meat is scarce, and so cannibalism isn't frowned upon so much. It's really, really funny. One of the same actors from the other movie is in his one, Dominique Pinon, who after looking, is recognizable from a lot of other films as well. He's really a very good actor, and enjoyable to watch. The movie is completely absurd, and dark, and funny, in only the way that the French can do. It's got a bit of the same feeling as Amelie, like even though it's modern, people are stuck in the past, in the 50s or 60s. It's a great feeling, and the look really works.

A really fun movie.
