This Box Set Contains The Following Films: Delicatessan follows a sweet-natured clown Louison who moves into a run down apartment building with a delicatessen on the ground floor and falls in love with the butcher's daughter Julie Clapet. When it turns out that Julie's father is actually butchering human beings and selling the meat to the carnivorous tenants of the building Julie must decide if she will remain loyal to her father's business or expose the truth in order to save Louison from being the next victim. Taking place entirely inside underneath and on... the roof of the delicatessen the film uses an old pipe that runs throughout the building as a channel of communication for its characters. City Of Lost Children is the story of a prematurely aging mad scientist named Krank who kidnaps children so he can steal their dreams. However Krank runs into trouble when his henchmen grab Denree a little boy whose adopted brother One is a circus strongman. One desperately tries to find Denree and begs for help from Miette a 9-year-old girl who heads up a gang of orphans. Together One and Miette finally find Krank's castle meeting along the way the lost identical brother--the original--of the three clones who serve as Krank's assistants.

Triple bill of movies from the cult French directors Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro. In 'Delicatessen' (1990), in a burnt-out city on the verge of collapse, a canny butcher (Jean-Claude Dreyfus) employs various young handymen, kills them, and then sells them as meat. When ex-circus performer Louison (Dominique Pinon) arrives looking for work, it seems that his head will be the next on the block. But Louison falls in love with Julie (Marie-Laure Dougnac), the butcher's daughter, and together they join forces with an underground vegetarian group who plan to bring an end to the butcher's cruel regime. 'The City of Lost Children' (1995) is set on a futuristic oil rig, where a man, Krank (Daniel Emilfork), has aged prematurely because he has lost the ability to dream. To reverse the ageing process he kidnaps children from the local harbour town so that he can steal their dreams. Finally, 'The Bunker of the Last Gunshots' (1981) is a short film about a group of soldiers living in a bleak futuristic world.
