Delicatessen Review


Excellent
Before Jean-Pierre Jeunet became the critics' darling with this whimsical romance Amelie, he was known to geek film aficionados the world over for crafting one of the early '90s most audacious and thrilling cult sleepers, Delicatessen.

The band of genetically-engineered characters live on a man-made island off shores of a coastal city, and it is from this city that Krank's thugs kidnap children. Why? Because Krank is unable to dream, he attempts to steal them from the children's minds.
