With a title like 'Cannibal' one might think they are about to enter a horror thriller but Cuenca's latest work is anything but. The script is more focused on the everyday mundane existence of our killer and the possibility that in trying to cover his recent kill he just may find a changing force....love. While not as successful with religious parables the film does succeed thanks to de la Torre's performance.
