the soundtrack of this film was suggested to me as a good listen and I agreed. So, I had to see the film but I did not look at any reviews first. I still haven't looked at any reviews, but I will say in review of this film, be prepared for shock, discomfort and horror, as the temperament from the start to the finish is laden with it.
This film is a black comedy set in an hotel in Venice that explores the pointed violence of humanity, its desires, its art... and cannibalism. You may think that in years to come, with available farmland diminishing as a result of gross global land mismanagement, the GM experiment failing without leading to greater yields, super-bugs affecting yields of crops - also as a result of GM, population expanding and the gap between rich and poor becoming ever wider that the pursuit of food by the masses in poverty would ultimately lead to some groups of humans hunting others for food. This film suggests this given scenario occurring in a very cultured way, though the end result is the same... you die: they eat. There is also a fine description of budget art as a group of actors film on location, staying in the hotel.
A movie that ambles as if with heat exhaustion, filled with events that just leave you feeling whether you really did want to watch it in the beginning whilst keeping you compelled just to see what happens next... not for the squeamish.
