Plot – Spoilers:
In a post-apocalyptic French town, the barter system is in vogue. Those who have nothing left to barter, pay in flesh. The surface humans dine on the troglodytes, a rebel bunch of underground dwellers who live among the sewers like rats and are titillated by delicacies like corn. But the troglodytes have become slippery and are hard to come by. For the tenants of an apartment building, their landlord, a butcher is the big daddy who lures unsuspecting folk to the apartment where he eyes their flesh-potential and butchers them when they reach their optimum mass.

Delicatessen is a bizarre comedy featuring some of the most inventive and hilarious ways to kill yourself. Squeaky bed springs have also never been the source of such intense musical hilarity. The cannibalism is merely referenced and so there is no gore, if that’s what you were looking for. If you enjoy the bizarre, this is one of the top guns.

Ok movie, i give this 5/10, if you’re looking for gore you won’t find it here, just a slow paced story with very good acting.

You ignorant clown… you wouldn’t know a good movie if it rummaged around your pants for three hours looking for whatever you explain to others is a cock. I would venture a guess that is a merely one small thing in a great list of stuff you tried, and failed.

The movie is classic like The City of Lost Children or Dark City. I saw it years ago in college. It’s not shocking or gory, per se, as with some other entries on site, but definitely a good movie and comical bc it’s weird af. I’d give it a 6.5-7/10.

Wow that was something else forsure.The idea is really cool but the bad guy was a magooo and well magoos are magoos and honestly the starting credits show so much and made me to expect more but I felt like there was not enough horror to much dry romantic horror shop moments its not so good when wrong turn makes you look foolish in there canibal ways lol they were off inbred babies and this guy is just a regular possibly small portion of one but still XD he should of been more clever.
Overall. I enjoyed this movie but would not want to watch it a second time till after a while

You can edit your comments but only for a short period of time. My guess is that OP wasn’t aware of this, but yeah, Coolidge didn’t had to be such a shithead about it.

Best part of this movie: the end credits (kid you not) – also the bed music thing, but you really gotta be blazing to get the punchline.

It’s the same feeling I get from watching The Suicide Shop (and someone had already mentioned The City of Lost Children).

Drôle de film… mais j’ai bien aimé !
Il me rappelle, dans un sens, “La Carne” de Gaspard Noé ou encore “Les triplettes de Bellville”. le gore n’est pas vraiment pas présent, maaiissss le jeu des acteurs et l’ambience du film le remplace.
J’aime vraiment ce genre de film, trop intriguant !! :^D
