De grønne slagtere – The Green Butchers (2003, Anders Thomas Jensen)

Probably the funniest film ever made about eating human flesh. Superb acting by Mads Mikkelsen and Nikolaj Lie Kaas made me actually whish that they get away with everything.

THE COOK THE THIEF HIS WIFE & HER LOVER (1989, Peter Greenaway)

Probably the most beautiful film ever made about eating human flesh. It’s supposed to be an allegory of Thatcherism, but being such a terrific feast for the eyes, it took me a few views to actually be able to draw myself away from the visuals…

DELICATESSEN (1991, Marc Caro, Jean-Pierre Jeunet)

Probably the most charming film ever made about eating human flesh, from the makers of Amélie, before Amélie. Post-apocaliptic athmosphere, strangely beautiful colors of an old photo, great acting and masterful directing. What else would we need? Maybe just genius use of sound that makes the whole film pulsate with rythm and music.

+ a bonus: DANS MA PEAU – In My Skin (2002, Marina de Van) Painfully insightfull, pathological and personal film about cannibalistic urges directed at oneself.
