Product Description

Carlos is the most prestigious tailor in Granada, Spain. His life is a study in details, from the meticulous suits he creates for wealthy clients to the macabre murders he executes in the shadows. He performs these gruesome acts, including dining on the women he kills, without guilt or remorse. When Nina, a beautiful young immigrant from Romania, comes looking for her missing twin sister, she awakens in Carlos a kind of love he d long since written off. As their relationship builds, based on secrets and deception, Nina s pure innocence will become undeniable, even by Carlos, a man driven by a dark secret. Cannibal is, in the end, a demon s love story.

Bonus features include a complementary short film, Director's Statement, and Bio, amongst other features.

"Cannibal" (2013 release from Spain; 117 min.) brings the story of Carlos, a well-respected in Granada at day, but a cold-blooded murderer and cannibal at night. As the movie opens, we see a couple at a gas station and when they drive away, Carlos follows them, and causes their car to crash. He removes and takes the woman with him, and does what he does. Meanwhile, Carlos has a lovely new neighbor in his building, a Romanian girl named Alexandra who moved to Spain with her sister Nina to make money and support their parents financially back home. When Alexandra also "is disappeared" by Carlos, Nina comes looking for her sister. To tell you more would spoil your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Couple of comments: first and foremost, don't be fooled by or intimidated by the movie's title. This is MILES away from "Silence of the Lambs" and its sequels, as this is NOT a horror movie or an action movie. Yes there are several harrowing scenes in it, but the focus of the movie is on a much deeper level, namely how one man can find himself in this position and just when you think you've figured him out, you are taken into a new direction. Second, kudos to director Manuel Martín Cuenca, whose previous movies (including "Malas temporadas" and "The Weakness of the Bolshevik") are now on my "want-to-see-badly" list. Third, the pacing of the moving is glacier-like, and I mean this as a complement. Check out the opening scene at the gas station, which takes several minutes and the camera doesn't change angles or zooms in, it simply lets you take it all in (this comes back a number of times in the movie).

Format: DVD
Director Manuel Martín Cuenca has transformed the novel by Humberto Arenal written for the screen by Alejandro Hernández about a topic that has been placed before the theater audiences before. The subject matter of cannibalism can be either disturbingly dark or it can be an investigation of an obsession worthy of examining. It is the latter path that this film takes.

In Spain, Carlos (Antonio de la Torre) is Granada's most prestigious tailor. His life is a study in details, from the meticulous suits he creates for wealthy clients to the macabre murders he executes in the shadows. He performs these gruesome acts, including dining on the women he kills, without guilt or remorse. When Nina (Olimpia Melinte), a beautiful young immigrant from Romania, comes looking for her missing twin sister, Carlos responds with a kind of love he had long since written off. As their relationship builds, based on secrets and deception, Nina's pure innocence will become undeniable, even by Carlos, a man driven by a dark secret. Cannibal is, in the end, the love story of a demon.

The film manages to include scenes of cannibalism but filmed with such restraint that we feel we are simply observing Carlos' propinquity. No sensationalism here, just a quiet, nearly wordless peak into the mind of a madman who is still capable of acting out life to please his clientele. It is only when the force of attraction that develops when he grows into his fondness for Nina that his other wayward manners seem strange. De la Torre is very fine at pulling off this impossibly difficult role. Grady Harp, November 14

Format: DVD
...Hannibal Lechter would not approve.

"Cannibal" begins with almost four minutes of a nearly static opening scene, showing the transaction of the driver of car at a remote gas station late at night. It is shot from a great distance, and there is almost no dialogue. Distance from its characters and lack of exposition (through actions or words) are the downfall of this film, despite its provocative premise.

Carlos is a maker of handmade suits in Granada. He lives an ascetic, ordered life, with his apartment and studio situated across the street and within view of each other. His only apparent joy is in restocking his refrigerator...with the products of the female victims he targets, kills and then butchers in a remote mountain cabin.

This routine is toppled with the intrusion of upstairs neighbor Alexandra into his world. A Romanian immigrant whose actual job is one of the film's areas of ambiguity (legitimate massage therapist or something else....you be be the judge) who has recently arrived in Granada after working in a "spa" in Zaragosa. Vaguely threatened by another Romanian (is he a pimp? you decide), Alexandra ends up missing. This sets the stage for the arrival of her sister Nina, her former spa partner (played by the same actress). Against his own sense of control, Carlos engages with her on a personal level. It's not a spoiler to say that what ensues is not a madcap romp, and neither does the outcome --while tragic-- track entirely with the film's title

This movie is nearly two hours long.Its impact could be greater without the repeated, lingering camera shots of the small --if macabre-- world that Carlos haunts.
