The Big Feast

La Grande Bouffe

Directed by Marco Ferreri
Italy, France, 1973
  • Italian
  • English


Four successful middle-aged men Marcello, a pilot; Michel, a television executive; Ugo, a chef; and, Philippe, a judge go to Philippe’s villa to eat themselves to death. After the first night, Marcello insists that women should join them.

Our take

Indulging in excessive eating this holiday season? Here’s a cure! (You’ve been warned.) Marco Ferreri’s justifiably notorious feast film is a cult classic of culinary cinema. But don’t think you’ll end up ordering take out by the end—things get weird, fast. Starring Mastroianni and Piccoli.
