Set in a surreal, post-apocalyptic world that’s equal parts Terry Gilliam, Jan Svankmajer and Bozo the Clown, DELICATESSEN stars Dominique Pinon as rubber-faced acrobat Louison and Marie-Laure Dougnac as his myopic sweetheart Julie, trying to find love while they evade the murderous meat-cleaver of her father (Jean-Claude Dreyfus) and a tenement filled with cannibalistic neighbors!

The first Latvian feature partially financed by a local crowdfunding campaign, THE FOUNDATION OF CRIMINAL EXCELLENCE follows a man’s hilarious search for inspiration for his screenplay about the criminal underworld.

With an entirely nonprofessional cast, this irreverent buddy comedy from first-time director Oskars Rupenheits was a surprise hit at the Latvian box office, becoming the No. 1 film of 2018.
