Four wealthy middle-aged men decide to get together at a country villa and eat themselves to death. They are: Marcello, a pilot; Ugo, a chef; Philippe, a judge; and Michel, a television executive. After the first night, they agree that something is lacking: female company. They recruit three prostitutes and a local primary school teacher, Andrea. The prostitutes, disgusted, depart after a few days, but Andrea appears to be having the time of her life and stays the course. Although the food is magnificent, it soon becomes apparent that this is not the nicest way to go…


Marco Ferreri won the FIPRESCI Prize given by the International Federation of Film Critics at the 1973 Cannes Film Festival.

The film was somewhat controversial upon its original release with its scatological humour and comic depictions of sex and over-eating.
