La Grande Bouffe

La Grande Bouffe

Directed by Marco Ferreri

Four friends, played by international superstars Marcello Mastroianni (Fellini’s 8½), Michel Piccoli (Belle de Jour), Ugo Tognazzi (Barbarella) and Philippe Noiret (Zazie dans le métro) retreat to a country mansion where they determine to eat themselves to death whilst engaging in group sex with prostitutes and a local school teacher (Andréa Ferréol, The Tin Drum), who seems to be up for anything… The most famous film by Italian provocateur Marco Ferreri (Dillinger is Dead), LA GRANDE BOUFFE was reviled on release for its perversity, decadence and attack on the bourgeoisie, yet won the prestigious FIPRESCI prize after its controversial screening at the Cannes Film Festival. (In French with English subtitles.)

Four friends resolve to eat themselves to death in this decadent, controversial Cannes winner.

Cast: Marcello Mastroianni, Michel Piccoli, Philippe Noiret

Bleak. Not really horror, either. But sure, worth a watch.
