This is a fascinating and disturbing short film from Denis Villeneuve that showed his talent early on. Worth watching for fans.

Fat pigs, insatiable appetites, greedy, over indulged, pampered, avaricious, hoarding, gluttonous sloths dragged to Hell by the weight of their own sins. Unfortunately it has just this one idea to play on, which is hilarious the first time it occurs. It repeats on a loop like David Lynch's first animated film, playing on the old 'more of' trick until it reaches absurdity. That works for a lot of Americans today, who may find this film more welcoming than the French. I kind of lost interest, but appreciated the photography, momentum, and performances.

Great short from the director of Prisoners, this movie makes us think.

Très original, déroutant et absurde. Visuellement incroyable.

Probably one of the best shorts I've ever seen. Less than 11 minutes have more essence than full lenght one.

I watched this silly little film, and thought it was absurd. I guess I don't understand the short film industry?....Very weird, and unsatisfying.

This is a Great Movie!!! It is only 11 minutes long and worth every minute!!! You have to see it to believe it! A bunch of high society mucky-mucks are feasting ravenously on a huge dinner of meat and other stuff and then they fall through the floor!!! Then they keep eating. Has to be seen to be appreciated.

What if Lynch and Cronenberg teamed up to make a 12-minute film, in French, about the over-consumption of current society? I'm pretty damn sure you'd get something like this. A bunch of shawnky, aristocrats are continaully being served more and more outrageous foods at a never ending dinner party. After enough weight is gained, they fall through, to the next floor. The butlers, waiters, etc., follow down the stairs.

This movie was a nice surprise. Courtney and I saw at the Hirshhorn, and it was definately one of the highlights of our DC trip. It looked excellent, with muted colors and a dark palette, save for the dark, deep reds of the slaughtered animals such as- a swordfish, a rhino, and a lion. Everything keeps repeating, but one of the guests, no one in the movie has a name, stops, and she relaizes that if they all stop eating, they'd stop falling. Alas, she's forced back into, and in the best part of the movie, through her soft laughter, which is playing up to fit, and inbetween bouts of ravenous stuffing of her throat, she's crying. It's a powerful and striking image. A

Simplement extraordinaire, un bijou d'inventivité, de créativité, de réflexions, maîtrisé avec habileté et magnificience. Ingénieux, beau, triste à la fois. Vision pessimiste du gouffre sans fond dans lequel notre ultra-consommation sans efforts nous pousse. Chef-d'oeuvre.
