»The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover«
by Peter Greenaway, NL/UK/F 1989, 125 min

A vulgar and gruesome thief with his band of thugs becomes a new, regular guest in the city’s best restaurant. Only his tyrannized wife knows how to enjoy the exquisite dishes, not to mention the love she shares in an affair with another restaurant guest. Protected by the cook, a kindly soul, the danger of the lovers being discovered draws nearer over the seven days ... until the last meal on the last day.
