From the director of AMELIE (Jean-Pierre Jeunet) comes a post-apocalyptic comedy that's both bitingly hilarious and absolutely one-of-a-kind. When meat becomes so rare that it is used as currency, residents living above a delicatessen must depend on a menacingly strange butcher (Jean-Claude Dreyfus) for their supply. But when a new tenant (Dominique Pinon) arrives and takes a job as the building's handyman, he unknowingly steps into the butcher's trap... to serve him as the next meal!

While travelling by train, Mathieu Faber relates his affair with Conchita Perez, his chambermaid who always shied away from his advances, to the people sharing his compartment. Mathieu and Conchita kept bumping into each other in different European cities, he without ever having achieved his aims, whereas she remained provocative and gave herself to other men. From this mutual stubbornness, which led to violence and absurdity, a subtle and strong bond, deeper than any other, united them.

Mike Nichols superbly directed this cinematic adaptation of Joseph Heller's scathing black comedy, a tale of a small group of flyers in the Mediterranean in 1944. There are winners and losers, opportunists and survivors. Separately and together they are nervous, frightened, often profane and sometimes pathetic. Almost all are a little crazy. CATCH-22 is an anti-war satire of epic proportions.
