Drama, romance and killings including a magnificent acting by Antonio De La Torre
20 July 2014 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

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 .
