Bourgeois excess has been put to film both before and after Ferreri, and while his perspective might not be the most original, it's still an interesting film examining the pathology of gluttony. Rather than the repressed socialites of Buñuel, these characters are completely unashamed in their depravity. Special mentions to Mastroianni and Ferréol for their excellent performances.
Wanted to like this one, yet the analogies it carries do not mesh well enough with the actual film neither does it go far enough to be truly pushing the boundaries. As a result, a longish series of sexual food and flatulence related scenes that lead exactly to what we are explained it will lead to.
