Hello all, greetings from the humid climes of Austin, Texas! I am reporting your weekly in theaters to you while taking a break from watching movies about rape, that take place in the woods, or are about long forgotten musical icons. Pro-tip: next year, submit a film that's about a camping trip gone awry, with at least one rape of any kind, co-starring, like, one of the members of Ace of Base or something. Let's sign some checks people! No, but the fest has been super fun and crazy as most fests are and should be. Also, I'm very busy with plans to start a charitable foundation for independent filmmakers who are in desperate need of tripods. The lack of tripods is an important issue that is facing our independent films today. But since you are not here (or are you?) let's get down to what's in theaters this weekend! This one is gonna be quick and dirty, 'cause I gots to go watch a crazy documentary.

Review: 'Delicacy' Delves Into A Memory That Can't Be Forgotten With A Face That Everyone Loves

At the start of "Delicacy", we meet two lovers, Nathalie (Audrey Tatou) and Francois (Pio Marmai). They are at play, re-creating the memories of their first encounter at a smoky French restaurant, where he gambled as to what she would order, making his move when she proved his thoughts correct. It's the image Francois already had of his future paramour, and, "Delicacy" argues, the one that mattered the greatest. What is love if not a permanent feeling for a temporary state?

Audrey Tautou's latest film, "La Délicatesse" -- or "Delicacy" -- encompasses several genres at once. The first part of the film feels like a storybook romance, as we follow her character Nathalie and her first love Francois (Pio Marmaï) as they meet, fall for each other, and get married -- everything is perfect, [spoiler alert] until the day he has an unexpected accident and dies. Then the film transforms into a study of grief and mourning, as Nathalie buries herself in her work and avoids most of the people in her life. But when she abruptly kisses her co-worker Markus (François Damiens), the film changes once again, now becoming a comedy.
