A new romantic comedy about Love, Fate, and other Delicacies
A French woman mourning over the death of her husband three years prior is courted by a Swedish co-worker.
I love Audrey Tautou. She’s far from the world’s greatest actress, and she appears in more bad films than good, but I just can’t help but watch any new film she appears in. She can turn what would typically be an insufferable two hours into an enjoyable way to waste away the time. However, even with my love for the elfin beauty, Delicacy is trite, irritating and poorly judged.
It is a forced romantic comedy using the springboard of a spousal bereavement to force together an opposites attract couple. If that sounds like a hard sell then it is and the film fails spectacularly to try and make you buy into a single relationship on screen. The early and smugly…

Delicacy is a charming romantic comedy with plenty going on under the surface, which sees grieving widow Audrey Tautou - who's devoted herself to work after her husband's untimely death - feeling a strange attraction to an ungainly, balding Swede (Francois Damiens), much to the mystification of everyone else, including him.
Tautou's films away from Jeunet tend to be either rather wonderful (like Priceless) or absolutely terrible and enlivened solely by her presence. While 2010's Beautiful Lies promised whimsical escapism but delivered only a refined form of cinematic stress, this potentially heavy, gloomy film does quite the opposite, tackling complex subject matter but emerging as a wonderfully entertaining romantic comedy thanks to real characters experiencing real emotions, a pair of…
This is the first time i'm not disappointed to see a film adapted from a book. I've been moved by the both. This film is the perfect mix of sweetness and emotion. The actors play their roles with perfection, sincerity and accuracy. A beautiful film, aptly titled.
A few sitcomish elements sometimes intrude - not least the improbable event that commences the central relationship - but this romantic comedy still doubles as a deep and resonant study of grief, with several unforgettable scenes, some very well-drawn characters and a magnificent performance from Audrey Tautou.
It's a film in which the female lead's best friend cries in happiness at her emotional rebirth, then makes the boyfriend feel like dirt when he isn't the vicariously enjoyable heartthrob she'd envisaged, a film where people hold a loyalty to people and events long past - despite how it's tearing them to pieces - and a film in which being polite about some soup is a one-way ticket to Sexytown.
A very good film, in other words.

Delicacy -- as in treating others delicately, not whipping up delicacies in the kitchen. Writer/co-director David Foenkinos understands that some things are too sweet for their own good, of which the adorable Audrey Tautou preparing desserts would undoubtedly qualify, testing whether it is possible for a movie to experience diabetic shock.
Sans cake or pie, Delicacy is still pretty sweet, but not overwhelmingly so. The story comes right out of the romantic-comedy playbook -- Nathalie (Tautou) loses the love of her life to a car accident, but by the end of the movie finds another. Even though we’ve seen this story many times before, however, it has never been told in quite this way.…
Hard to not love a movie about two real imperfect people that fall in love. It's funny and sweet. One of my favorite rom-coms.
A delicadeza (rá!) de cada cena me faz amar esse filme. Uma linda história de amor.
Ah! Os franceses e Audrey Tautou continuam não decepcionando.
I really like this film, I remember it coming out with very little fanfare but I've now ended up seeing it several times.
I hope it's not just because I see it as "dorky male wish fulfillment" in that the dude who isn't hot gets with Audrey Tautou. Actually the poster used for this on this site is hilarious - look how small his picture is in comparison to hers! And unrelatedly, why is the title falling over? Weird. Anyway....
But I think this is a really charming and funny film. Sure I absolutely sympthasize with Markus in the film, there's no denying that. Would I like it less if I didn't? Who's to say?
But the relationship feels completely…
passou tão em branco que eu achei que não tinha visto todo. chegou o final de novo e concluí que sim, tinha assistido inteiro e era só aquilo mesmo. ok.
Watched it this afternoon and I've already forgotten it. This was not my choice.
O filme mostra como normal um assédio. E a pessoa ainda fica feliz depois.
I'll watch just about anything if it has Audrey Tautou in it. This was uneven at best though. It had its moments.
Melhor filme de romance q já vi ♡_♡
esse filme é sobre uma viúva que se apaixona por um homem feio, e os percalços que ela passa com dito homem feio
