Plot – Spoilers:
Four middle-aged friends wrap up their lives to spend the next few weeks at an old mansion. The friends range from a horny pilot to a judge who’s grown into middle-age on his nanny’s tits.
The get-together at the mansion has a very serious objective – to indulge in extreme overeating, in the hope of fatal consequences. After a while of eating copious ornate meals, they realize that the sensual pleasures thus obtained need to be complemented by penile pleasures. And so they hook up with a few prostitutes and a plump passerby teacher who seems to dig their grand plans.
La Grand Bouffe is a classy portrayal of what could perhaps be a gross-out experience for some. Its pinnacle is probably a scene of sexual farting. Until that’s topped by musical farting that rapidly morphs into terminal farting.
