Storyline

The Hotel Splendide is on a remote and cold island, accessible only by a once-a-month ferry. It's a dark and dreary spa created by the late Dame Blanche, whose grown children now run the hotel according to her specificiations, serving up ghastly seaweed and fish-based food and enema treatments. Kath, once the sous chef, arrives when she receives an anonymous letter telling her of the matriarch's death. Will she bring light into the place with her wonderful cooking?

Quotes

[first lines]
Stanley Smith: [narration] The Hotel Splendide is a unique and marvelous place. It's an ideal spot to rest or convalesce, with full hydro-spa facilities, no shortage of fresh fish, and a friendly family atmosphere, which hasn't change since Mrs. Blanche died last year.

Splendidly, sordidly, spectacular...
30 October 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

A brilliant feature debut by Terry Gross - a monstrous main course to follow his deliciously gross entree "The Sin Eater." Mr. Gross's twin leitmotifs - food and sex - are wonderfully combined in this outrageous exercise in romantic, tragi-comic, grande guignol... It's pointless to try to precis the plot or to attempt to outline the characters, you have to see the picture. YOU HAVE TO SEE THE PICTURE!
