Everything about this film is completely delicious in a grotesque way. The cinematography, the sets, the story, all combine to create this psudo-50s post-apocalyptic nightmare, where people are driven to extremes (cannibalism!) to survive. Despite the dark nature of the film, it slides cleanly between grotesque and hilarious. Very fun, very delicious stuff, and it makes for an absolutely wonderful dark comedy.
(Side note: I am also completely in love with the colors in Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s films.)
