Emilio Martínez Lázaro
American writer in Paris is hired to do a script for an edgy young director he can't stand. When he falls in love with the director's cold and manipulative pretty sister, his life starts to unravel and he realizes that he's been used.
Drama, romance and killings including a magnificent acting by Antonio De La Torre
A sumptuous love story starred by a loner called Carlos (Antonio De La Torre) , he is the most prestigious tailor in Granada, but he's also a series killer in the shadows . He feels no remorse, no guilt, until Nina (Olimpia Melinte in double role as Alexandra / Nina) appears in his life and love awakens . Carlos unexpectedly finds himself falling in love with his latest prospective victim . As their love is insatiable .
Thrilling story about a strange tailor and his relationship with a Romanian girl , filled with lasting images , style and slow moving . It is an exciting film displaying suspense , intrigue , tension , a touching love story , nudism and interesting drama well written by Humberto Arenal and the same filmmaker and based on the novel by Alejandro Hernández . Manuel Martin Cuenca's dark romance centres on a tailor and secret cannibal played masterfully by Antonio de la Torre who gives an awesome portrait of a weird man , being set in Granada Holy Week . In Cannibal, we see a surprisingly thoughtful approach to an otherwise gruesome premise, one we're confident audiences will be well gripped into a peculiar romance and a twisted intrigue . This low budget film received a positive reception from its first screening at various festivals and premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival . Furthermore , Cannibal won numerous prizes , being premiered at Cinema Writers Circle Awards, Spain , Feroz Awards , San Sebastián International Film Festival ,Santa Barbara International Film Festival , Spanish Actors Unión and especially various Goya Awards (Spanish Oscar) such as Best Cinematography : Pau Esteve Birba , Goya Best Actor : Antonio de la Torre , Best New Actress : Olimpia Melinte , Best Director : Manuel Martín Cuenca and Best Screenplay Adapted : Manuel Martín Cuenca and Alejandro Hernández .
Colorful and evocative cinematography by Pau Esteve Birba filmed on location in Granada ,Güejar Sierra, Motril and Sierra Nevada, Granada, Andalucía, Spain . The film was well produced by Fernando Bovaira , one of the best Spanish producers , financing a lot of films in lavish budgets such as ¨The others¨ , ¨The sea inside¨ , ¨Agora¨ , ¨Mortadelo and Filemon¨, ¨Butterfly tongue¨ , among others . Manuel Martin Cuenca has established himself as one of Spain's most artistically astute directors , his works consistently evolving in skill and style . Manuel Martín Cuenca was born on November 30, 1964 in Almería , Almería, Andalucía , location where he usually shoots his pictures . He is a good director and writer, known for La Flaqueza Del Bolchevique (2003) , Malas Temporadas (2005) , 4 Puntos Cardinales (2002) , being his best movie this Caníbal or Cannibal (2013) . Rating : Better than average . Worthwhile watching .
