LOS ANGELES, CA - Following a tragic accident, a young woman is widowed and her life comes crashing down around her. But when an unexpected romance rekindles her zest for life, she fights self-doubts and a host of other obstacles in Delicacy, an internationally acclaimed romantic comedy starring the Cesar-winning Audrey Tautou (The DaVinci Code, Amelie). The 2012 theatrical release, adapted by David Foenkinos from his award-winning best-seller "La Delicatesse", will be available on DVD and Blu-ray from Cohen Media Group this September.
Called "one of Audrey Tautou's best performances since Amelie" and "a sweetheart of a love story", Delicacy features Tautou as Nathalie, a beautiful, happy and successful Parisian business executive. But when she's suddenly widowed after a three-year marriage to her soul mate, her perfect world is destroyed. To cope with the loss, she buries herself and her emotions in her work to the dismay of 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 Nathalies's unexpected attention, Markus comes to gradually believe in her feelings and shifts into romantic high gear. And as their relationship goes from awkward to genuinely loving, this odd couple embarks upon an emotional journey that raises a great many questions from those around them. But can we really choose how we rediscover a taste for life? A story of rebirth and the singularity of love, Delicacy is about finding happiness in the most unexpected of places...right in front of your eyes.
An acclaimed 2012 U.S. theatrical release and the Official Closing Night Selection of the prestigious Rendezvous with French Cinema Festival, Delicacy, was directed by Foenkinos and his brother, Stephane and produced by 2.4.7. Films. Bonus features include a "Making of" featurette and an exclusive interview with Tautou. It is presented in a 16 x 9 animorphic format (1.78:1) with 5.1 Dolby Digital (DVD) and DTS-HD Master audio for blu-ray.
