review by
Mike Haberfelner

Otavio (Tavinho Teixeira) runs a successful security company, and he and his wife Gilda (Ana Luiza Rios) belong to Brazil's elite, that part of society that's decadent to the core while the country's going downhill. And as such, Otavio and Gilda see it only fitting to every now and again kill one of their employees while she's having sex with him (since Otavio's impotent, he can't pleasure Gilda anymore) and then eat that person. Otavio is also a member of the "cannibal club", a club where performers are killed live on stage during the sexual act, and then prepared and eaten for dinner. And president of this club is none other than the well respected congressman Borges (Pedro Domingues) - which of course comes in more than handy when deflecting legal problems. During a party at their house though, Gilda catches Borges being shagged in the behind by one of their own security, Lucivaldo (Galba Nogueira), and she has the bad judgment to later tell Borges what she has seen - and Borges, like all politicians, of course can't afford any kind of scandal, so he decides to send a few men over to Otavio and Gilda's house to take them out. But they expect Borges' men and manage to take them out - and this is where problems really start ...


If after reading the title of this movie you have expected an all-out cannibal-gorefest, you'll be disappointed, The Cannibal Club is stronger on hinting than on showing, and cannibalism here is much more a metaphor than an actual fact. But if you can see beyond just the blood and guts (or relative lack thereof), you're treated to a very dark sociopolitical satire that cuts deep into the heart (pun intended) of Brazil's society and what's wrong with it - but without becoming overly political, let alone driving the message home with a sledgehammer. And the for a cannibal movie unusually slick direction only helps to deliver the message in a subtle way. And of course, an uniformly strong cast playing interesting characters beyond the usual good vs. evil dichotomy help make this one a joy to watch, pretty much regardless whether you choose to watch this as a satire of just a black comedy.
