Delicatessen

Delicatessen sceneI had no expectation when I watched this film. I read some information about it but that all changed my impression afterwards. The first thing that stuck out to me was how sporadic the use of the color yellow was in some of the background and environment. The location of the film seemed to be mainly focused on the delicatessen and its neighborhood. The weather seemed to be one of the main influences. I also found it interesting that there were a lot of shots of the pipes in the building and in the sewers.

I also found the characters amusing from the main protagonist who used to be a clown and the woman who felt she was insane. The comedic moments to me was her attempts at suicide where she devise an elaborate plan to execute herself however it fails in the last moments.
