Take a slice out of Manuel Martin Cuenca’s CANNIBAL
For fans of the Cannibal genre that doesn’t always have to involve Italian Jungle folies. You will be interested to know that Spanish director Manuel Martín Cuenca, the bloke behind the excellent 2003 film WEAKNESS OF THE BOLSHEVIK and the not so good HALF OF OSCAR, has a new film just completed called strangely enough CANNIBAL (Caníbal).
Details are limited but the story seems to be about a tailor who moonlights as a killer. He meets up with a woman and their sexual passions are awakened and perhaps their passion for consuming flesh. Sounds like ASSAULT! JACK THE RIPPER with a cannibal angle.
Synopsis: Carlos is the most prestigious tailor in Granada, but he’s also a murderer in the shadows. He feels no remorse, no guilt, until Nina appears in his life. She will make him realize the true nature of his acts and, for the first time, love awakens. Carlos is evil incarnate, unaware of itself. Nina is pure innocence. And Cannibal is a demon’s love story.
This film is apparently very good and has been picked up as an official entry in the Toronto International Film Festival.
