Félicitations to Olivia de Santis, student of French and Psychology who has been named winner of the third round of the 'Critiques de Film French Student Film Critic Prize'.
Olivia won the third round with her review of Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro’s dark, cannibalistic film Delicatessen (1991). Olivua's review is now featured on the Embassy of France’s new website for French-Australian relations, Sacreblue!
Delicatessen questions the affordability of a moral compass in times of desperation. While the film’s setting evokes images of war, famine and ruin, it may also remind the contemporary viewer of the pressures to constantly make ethical choices, and the inner conflict one feels when they can’t afford to be more ‘ethical’.
