Abridged Book Description

Creatively combining genres - postapocalyptic sci-fi, black comedy, and sweet romance - and offering audiences an impressively oddball collection of sounds, colors, actors, and images, Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro's inspired film Delicatessen was the recipient of several European awards... With an eccentric screenplay by comic-book writer Gilles Adrian, and a number of darkly humorous set pieces, Delicatessen is a feast for the eyes and ears.
