Subversive Italian satirist Marco Ferreri directed and co-wrote (with Rafael Azcona) this grotesquely amusing French black comedy about four men who grow sick of life, and so meet at a remote villa with the goal of literally eating themselves to death. The quartet comes from various walks of life -- a pilot (Marcello Mastroianni), a chef (Ugo Tognazzi), a television host (Michel Piccoli), and a judge (Philippe Noiret) -- but all are successful men with excessive appetites for life's pleasures

There's a disconnect since the four main characters aren't likable people and they don't act reasonably towards themselves or anyone else, but we aren't give any real POV. They aren't comic slobs to laugh at nor do they have any aristocratic dignity.
Estranho e por vezes chocante, o filme é rico em simbolismos em sua análise sobre as frustrações do homem moderno, retratando a degradação de seus personagens através da entrega total à realização dos prazeres da carne (em sentidos literal e figurativo).
