San Francisco Chronicle
The latest Audrey Tautou film, Delicacy, is sensitive and well acted and fits under the general category of "good movie," and yet it would be hard to get excited about it.
The A.V. Club
The movie is caught between the poignancy of the everyday and the exaggerations of fiction.
The New York Times
It's a lightweight romance that occasionally shows a sense of humor but seems afraid to turn it loose.
New York Post
The movie is a pleasant way to spend time in the dark, especially for Francophiles, but it won't leave any lasting impression.
The Hollywood Reporter
A flat-footed and seriously unsexy romantic dramedy.
Tautou is fine but clearly typecast as another whimsical pixie with strong melancholy undercurrents.
It's a rebound-romance movie that's simplistic but sweet, an uncomplicated cinematic bonbon. It'll only take a few quick bites, however, before you'll be ready to move on to something meatier.
Tautou, playing workaholic widow Nathalie in Delicacy, gives off a sexless, cutie-pie charm - not as aggressively as she did in "Amélie," but still gratingly. The actress, therefore, is perfect for this dainty, inconsequential romantic dramedy.
New York Daily News
Gently sweet but unmemorable bonbon.
Now that Zooey Deschanel has taken a detour into TV land, is Audrey Tautou the most insufferable pixy presence in cinema today?
