This is an amazingly original film, not because it covers the Mewes case in Germany but because of its portrayal which after 30yrs of watching extreme horror I've never seen before.
Que this may annoy some, but this is the first cannibal film that honestly portrays closeness and love. I have no interest in explaining details as its already been done, but the graphic detail of Mewes cannibal tendances and love through his obsession towards his partner are nothing like I've ever seen. The graphic portrayal of events is never done in a torture capacity but more of a loving one. V v unusual film.
Don't watch some cut version it won't work, has to be seen the way it was meant to be seen. Weirdly the warning on dvd cover refers to "homosexual" activity not cannibalism which is actually legal in Germany!!! I may add ive come across many psychopaths in my time Mewes isn't one.
A easy 9/10

This movie by Marian Dora comes with a reputation. It is the true story of a couple of men meeting on the internet. One wants to eat another person and one wants to be devoured. From the opening credits the viewer can tell it’s well filmed on a moderate budget and the props used in the credits are successful in leaving an unnerving feel. The film feels right for an extreme horror – grim tone and totally devoid of any humour.
The intimate scenes between the two men show a tender side to the two personalities that feel very real and the lack of dialogue really works throughout the film due to the good use of sound. The film has gore and sexual scenes but at nearly an hour and a half some of the scenes appear over-long or unnecessary. A good, if not very entertaining film that deserves a watch for extreme horror fans but most would decide not to revisit it.

Cannibal killers were nothing new, but the fact that a man actually allowed himself, and in fact needed to be, eaten by another man (and so gave his permission for it) was something pretty much unheard of until the TRUE tale of this crime broke around the world.

As such it was certain that such a ripe subject would be heaven sent for any film maker with an eye on the extreme.
And in "Cannibal" director Marian Dora has given us what will probably remain the definitive fictional account of this true life event. And probably the closest any kind of general public will get to the actual video that Meiwes (the actual cannibal) made that day.

"Cannibal" is a slice of uncompromising, unapologetic cinema that rubs your face (and any puritan attitudes) in sweat, blood and bodily fluids and gives you the kind of jolt that is rare today in Horror/Exploitation cinema.

There are prime underground movie-making sensibilities at work here and you either embrace it or waste it. And it would be a crime indeed if you were to waste such a succulent morsel as "Cannibal".

5 star real shocker from the director of 'Melancholie der Engel' . Low budget and very seedy but the gore is great and it really does stick with you for some time after watching it. I suggest purchasing this Dutch version or the region 1 version . Based on a true story , but not for the faint hearted - be warned !

Now, to be fair, when you say 'based on a true story' my interest in a film well and truly tails off. But when the story in question is that of Armin Miewes, a German man who advertised to find a voluntary human sacrifice for his cannibalistic desires – and found a willing party – then you might just pique my interest. It's an infamous case that has been referenced many times, including in one of my favourite Rammstein tracks Mein Teil. But I digress...

So from the very beginning its fairly obvious what we will be getting into, right? Well, yes and no. Yes, there is enough gore here to satisfy probably even the more hardened of bloodhounds out there. What you might not have anticipated was an artful romance – typical of Dora's style, there's more at work here than just pure shock value. There is a film-maker at work here, and I'd argue a good one – albeit one who has made his reputation in making some of the most controversial movies of all time.

The lead characters are never named, but our cannibal is played by the perennially disturbing Carsten Frank, an actor willing to lose himself in some of the most terrible characters imaginable. There's a bit of scene setting – getting to know our Armin Miewes character a little – before he meets 'The Flesh', ably played by Victor Brandl. It's from here that we embark into what is a strangely sensual and loving relationship before the act of ritualistic slaughter that is to come, which serves as a kind of culmination of that twisted bond between the two.

You may have already gathered from the review so far – there's not an awful lot going on plot-wise here. There's no attempt at escape, no attempt at rescue, no-one trying to stop what our two characters are doing.
