Book vs. Film: Delicacy


  • It’s a far more delicate story on paper than on film.
  • For its gentle humour and its palatable grief.
  • But well done to the casting agent for not choosing a ‘perhaps-could-be-handsome-Markus’.
  • Also worth noting the amazing mid-century office that is used as a location in the film – seriously amazing.

  1. Film well worth seeing – Tautou is, of course, charming. Casting all round is spot on. I read your review of the book – you’ll be pleased to know there are no film equivalents of all the footnotes, song lyrics and odd notes that are included in the book!
