No one cared thus far. Do you?


AKA: The Big Feast
Directed by: Marco Ferreri
Starring: Philippe Noiret (Philippe), Marcello Mastroianni (Marcello), Michel Piccoli (Michel), Ugo Tognazzi (Ugo), Andrea Ferreol (Andrea)
Country: France
Language: French (Eng Subs)
Runtime: 02:09:52
Genres: Overeating, Farting

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.

David Bennett is in that one! I’ve never seen it but he was great as Gump in Legend so I looked up his filmography.

I lasted 15 minutes, then gave up in boredom. The French might think it’s great – I think it’s over rated.

I took two days to finish this movie, couldn’t watch it in one sitting cos it’s a slow and long movie…. but I love the concept of eating oneself to death…. 5/5 ratings.
