You can't get enough...
31 July 2002 | by irmaladouceSee all my reviews

Felix Hoffman is a difficult man a a passionate eater! This movie is a philosophical delicatesse. A Dutch ambassador in Prague. He never sleeps; he's is searching for grace...He never stops eating; he tries to purify himself, to satiate his mind and body with the lecture of Baruch de Spinoza. A fatal affair with a beautiful Czech spy bring his live in real trouble... Brilliant acting, incidentally Huub Stapel as Spinoza, an excellent script and an wonderful equipment (from the guys of Peter Greenaways films) make this movie perfect! Enjoy!
