La Grande bouffe
aka The Big Feast First screened in May 2013
Director: Marco Ferreri. Cast: Marcello Mastroianni, Philippe Noiret, Michel Piccoli, Andréa Ferréol, Ugo Tognazzi, Solange Blondeau, Michèle Alexandre, Monique Chaumette, Florence Giorgetti, Henri Piccoli. Screenplay: Marco Ferreri, Rafael Azcona, and Francis Blanche. Twitter Capsule:Salò played as richly appointed farce. Corpulence, inertia are both themes and flaws. Larded with top Euro actors.
Self-consciously a "bold statement," much debated upon Cannes premiere. Worth attending to despite some self-satisfaction. Hard to beat that congress of actors.
