Delicacy for Your Life from Audrey Tautou
If you are currently reading one of best-selling books about so-called self-helping, I recommend you to stop it and put the book on the most distant shelf. It is very possible that after watching the movie Delicacy (original title: La Delicatesse) with Audrey Tautou you will no longer need this kind of books.
You will not need such staff not because this movie will answer all your questions and solve all your problems. No, this will not happen. This film will make the most important thing - it will take you back to reality. To the reality which is free from an excessive pessimism as well as from the boundless optimism.
The Delicacy in a very pleasant and unobtrusive form will force you to rethink many of your life values. Most likely from some of them you will be happy to refuse and others will be under your strong reviewing. Almost all of us want those or other changes. But as a rule, we do not always want them consciously. Let's just ask ourselves some questions:
Why do I get up so early in the morning?
What do I do on my work and why?
Do I really like it?
Is there a real passion in my life? What about love?
What is all my day about?
What kind of mood do I have when I'm going to bed?
The movie Delicacy will not be able to answer these and many other questions. But Audrey Tautou definitely will make you think and start looking for answers. That is the main message of the film - searching and finding answers that can really change your life.
But a variety of TV programs, audio CDs and books devoted to “soul-healing” offer the same. Right? Yes, that's right, but not quite. Most of these books are aimed at the creation of a perfect world in which you will have only positive emotions. This world does not exist. Of course, many people want immediate answers to all vital questions. To get them they go to the nearest bookstore and buy the new guru’s book. When making sure that what is described in the book is radically different from things which a man encounters in real life, they go back to the bookstore and buy another book, some new “science sensation”.Continued on the next page
