He explains that the origins of the film came from a time when he lived above a butcher’s and was woken up at seven in the morning to the sound of the man sharpening his knife. His fiancé jokingly suggested that the butcher was going to start killing tenants off and Jeunet never forgot that idea. The director comments on how he made Delicatessen on a low budget and how challenging it was to realize his vision with little money. He tells all kinds of anecdotes and explains what inspired certain shots or where certain props came from. This is a very engaging and informative track that is definitely worth a listen.
