Marco Ferreri's landmark film is an unparalleled orgy of food, sex, and food, that scandalized world cinema when it won the Cannes Film Festival's International Critics Award in 1973. Both a bawdy tale of wine and women, and an irreverent dig at bourgeois self-indulgence, the film follows four middle-aged professional men (superbly portrayed by Marcello Mastroianni, Ugo Tognazzi, Michel Piccoli and Philippe Noiret) as they leave their day jobs as pilots, chefs, lawyers and TV producers, and meet for one final orgiastic weekend filled with gourmet food, call girls, and a lusty schoolteacher!

As the Bacchanalian feast unfolds, the quartet of gorging gourmands play out a blackly humorous parable of modern societal collapse in a film the New York Times called "vulgar vaudeville on an epic scale...a mordant, chilling, hilarious dirty movie." More than thirty years later, La Grande Bouffe continues to challenge audiences' sensibilities and test the limits of good taste.
