Audrey Tautou, the luminous star of Amélie and Coco Before Chanel, returns with this touching portrait of a woman trying to put her life back together after an unexpected tragedy. Natalie (Tautou) has it all: beauty, talent, a professional career, and a wonderful husband to boot. But one day her husband is killed, and Natalie must pick up the pieces. She burrows into her work, ignoring the constant flirtation of her boss Charles (Bruno Todeschini). Then one day, seemingly on impulse, she decides to kiss one of her co-workers, Markus (François Damiens). At first, Markus doesn’t seem to especially want a relationship—nor is Natalie sure that she’s ready for a new one. But from the moment of that kiss something inevitable draws them together, despite some considerable hurdles along the way. Popular writer David Foenkinos teams up with his brother Stephane to direct this adaptation of his own novel; laced with humor, La délicatesse is a charming adult fable on starting over.
