In this romantic, and yet comedic, French film Delicacy, Audrey Tautou stars as a woman who fell in love, lost it, and found it again. Francois Damiens plays the second love who has a bit of a funny, awkward side. I love how in the trailer, they don’t use subtitles, even when they are speaking French.
“Audrey Tautou is Nathalie, a beautiful, happy, and successful Parisian business executive who finds herself suddenly widowed after a three-year marriage to her soul mate. To cope with her loss, she buries herself and her emotions in her work to the dismay of her friends, family and co-workers. One day, inexplicably, her zest for life and love is rekindled by a most unlikely source, her seemingly unexceptional, gauche, and average looking office subordinate, Markus (French comic star Francois Damiens, Heartbreaker). At first stunned by Nathalie’s unexpected attention, Markus comes to gradually believe in her feelings and shifts into romantic high gear. As their relationship goes from awkward to genuinely loving, Nathalie and Markus will have to overcome a host of obstacles including everyone else’s judgmental perceptions as well as their own self-doubts.”
Delicacy is in theatres March 16, 2012.
