LA GRANDE BOUFFE
Directed by MARCO FERRERI
Screenplay by MARCO FERRERI and RAFAEL AZCONA
For purposes of publicity, and for the advancement of the box office receipts, the distributors of La Grande Bouffe would like moviegoers to be scandalized by: gluttony, scatology, sexual perversion, assorted malfunctions of the gastrointestinal tract and a rather florid disposition toward suicide. This may also have been the intention of Director Ferreri. Unfortunately, however, he hasn't the wit or style or inventiveness to outrage. Ferreri is the kind of clumsy film maker whose deadeningly literal style could turn even the grossest affront into a piddling bromide.
