Studiocanal has announced a new 4K restoration of Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro‘s surreal dark comedy, DELICATESSEN, which will be released on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital on 16th October 2023.
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.
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?
