Delicacy - Preview & trailer


Preview by Jack Foley

NATHALIE (Audrey Tautou) has a wonderful life. She is young, beautiful and has the perfect marriage.

But when her husband dies in an accident, it brings her world crashing down. For the next few years, she focuses on work, leaving her emotions on the sidelines.

Then all of a sudden, without even understanding why, she kisses a most unlikely man – her co-worker, Markus (Francois Damiens).

This odd couple then embarks upon their own emotional journey; a journey that raises all kinds of questions and hostility at work. Can we really choose how we rediscover our taste for life?

Marvelling at their newfound love, Nathalie and Markus end up running away to give their relationship a fighting chance. This is a story of rebirth but it is also a tale of the singularity of love.

Adapted from David Foenkinos’ eighth novel (the winner of 10 literary awards and which has sold over 700,000 copies), David and Stephane Foenkinos’ Delicacy is released in UK cinemas on April 13.

You can see it before that, however, as part of the Rendezvous French film festival this week in London. The film is being screened at the Ciné Lumière on Friday, March 23, at 6.15pm and will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers.
