Delicacy review

Audrey Tautou stars in a bereavement romcom

You might think that spousal bereavement and whimsical romantic comedy would make uneasy bedfellows, and you'd be somewhat right, as the debut from French duo Stéphane and David Foenkinos doesn't quite reconcile the divide between premise and tone.

We're introduced to Nathalie (Audrey Tautou) a few scenes before her hubby's unexpected death, a plot turn which feels a tad cheap given how little time it's given.

Nonetheless, her subsequent romance with sad-sack Markus (François Damiens) charms, never veering into kook but remaining in the realms of the recognisable.
