La grande bouffe / Blow-Out
Incorrect@s

Four middle-aged men, a pilot, a businessman, a judge and a chef, shut themselves away in a mansion surrounded by enormous amounts of food, excellent wines and prostitutes. They are bored with life and hope that the passage to death will be more pleasant this way. This is the start of an orgy at the end of which each and every one of them will quite literally burst.
BIOGRAPHY
He used corrosive, provocative and malicious humour to produce a series of variations on man?s schizophrenia, his frustrations, fears and dreams. He applied paradox, the grotesque and absurdity. Hence his cinema, instigative and disproportionate, never left anybody unmoved. A few examples are: El cochecito (The Little Coach, 1960), Il seme dell?oumo (The Seed of Man, 1969), La grande bouffe (Blow-Out, 1973), Ciao maschio (Bye Bye Monkey, 1978), Il futuro è donna (The Future Is Woman, 1984) and Nitrato d?argento (1996).
