You must be logged in to watch films on Festival Scope - this film may not be available for all users


A beautiful day on the Brazilian coast. Stinking-rich Gilda lies beside her pool with a cocktail, while her husband Octavio fills a plate with grilled meat - human meat, we soon discover. The villa's toiling cleaner has no idea he is soon destined to be served up in neat slices on a plate. Delightfully crazy, this Brazilian satire about an elite club that secretly organises chic dinners where the main ingredients are rampant sex and the flesh of simple souls. When Gilda accidentally discovers that the leader has a hidden side, her and Octavio's futures hang in the balance. Guto Parente has made a blow-up of society that is as gruesome as it is funny. A world in which the very richest think they are unassailable, laugh and boast about infidelity, murder at will with impunity, meanwhile complaining about the uncouth thugs wandering the streets. Locked up in their ivory towers, they just wait until reality catches up with them.
