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.
67
The movie is caught between the poignancy of the everyday and the exaggerations of fiction.
50
It's a lightweight romance that occasionally shows a sense of humor but seems afraid to turn it loose.

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.

Variety
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.

Village Voice
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.
40
Gently sweet but unmemorable bonbon.

Slant Magazine
Now that Zooey Deschanel has taken a detour into TV land, is Audrey Tautou the most insufferable pixy presence in cinema today?
