Delicatessen (1991)

An odd and quirky flick with a very dark story line from Amelie maker Jean-Pierre Jeunet. The stuff that comes out of France is often so different than what comes out of North America that it takes a major shift in being able to appreciate it fully, but it is definitely worth the effort.

In a food scarce future in France, a man finds work as a handyman in exchange for room and board. The catch, unbeknownst to him, is that he will be the supper for some future handyman. The story includes some underground people and wild children - dark, but also life breathing and luminous.
