130 mins

FRA/ITA | 1973 | dir. Marco Ferreri, with Marcello Mastroianni, Michel Piccoli, Philippe Noiret, Ugo Tognazzi, Andréa Ferréol | restored film on DCP

Four world-weary middle-aged men (a pilot, a chef, a judge and a TV personality) decide to gorge themselves to death in one final orgiastic weekend of gluttony, wanton sex, and general hedonism. (Re)discover Ferreri’s scandalous blackly-comic satire of modern consumer society, with its quest for constant, unlimited and guilt-free pleasure.

This screening is part of the Great Exhibition Road Festival and echoes the Food: Bigger than the Plate exhibition at the V&A.

All tickets £5.
