La delicatesse (film)

Delicacy (La delicatesse) is a French film with Audrey Tautou in it. This is all I needed to know to get me booking the cinema seats, but would have made for a very short blog!

This French language romantic comedy stars Audrey Tautou (Amelie, A Very Long Engagement) as Nathalie, a successful businesswoman whose husband, Francois (Pio Marmai), was killed while out jogging. He was 'rammed by a car' according to the doctor although I expect the words will sound less heartless in French. Three years later, Nathalie is beginning to rebuild her life and two men might be possibilities for a new romance: Charlie (Bruno Todeschini), her boss - slick, stylish and on the face of it, the more likely choice - or Markus (Francois Damiens), her Swedish co-worker - older, less attractive and less successful than Nathalie. 

A gentle, whimsical tale, Delicacy is the first film directed by brothers David and Stephane Foenkinos. David is also the author of the original novel, a best-seller in France.
