Time Left
  • 3.9
A barbaric crime boss, accompanied by his wife and associates, entertains himself every night in a fancy French restaurant that he has recently bought. Having tired of her sadistic, boorish husband, the wife engages in a secretive romance with a gentle bookseller between meals. Murder, torture, and cannibalism are the exotic menu fare, yet death is served to those with monstrous appetites.

The exotic scenes , well done, brought us face to face with beauty and evil. The beauty, I thoroughly enjoyed. The evil was more than I could stand, and so I skipped the last quarter and then enjoyed the end. I applaud the writer and all involved in the production and presentation of the film, but in these days, outrageous men and victimized women are - or perhaps ought to be - not a source of recreation.
