The Cannibals (1988) Manoel de Oliveira, Luís Miguel Cintra, Leonor Silveira, Diogo Dória, Musical, Drama, Fantasy, Mystery


This odd film is a major representative of an even odder film genre: direct-to-celluloid opera. It was commissioned by the Portuguese master of style, director Manoel de Oliveira from composer João Paes. Musically, it ranges from 19th-century romanticism to popular, modernist and even “post-modernist” styles. In the initially tame story, a host-narrator tells the story of a wedding between the two lovebirds: Viscount d’Aveleda and the beautiful Marguerite. However, what happens in the bridal chamber is incredibly bizarre. The events after that are even stranger (the film out-does even Luis Buñuel in that department), and the wedding guests and family indulge in cannibalism, among other perversions.
