Blow Out

A film by Marco Ferreri

Back
Four world-weary middle-aged men (a pilot, chef, judge and TV personality) decide to gorge themselves to death in one final orgiastic weekend of sex and gourmet food. Ferreri’s blackly-comic satire of our modern consumer society won the Critics Award at the 1973 Cannes Film Festival.

Director

Marco Ferreri

Marco Ferreri (11 May 1928 – 9 May 1997) was an Italian film director, screenwriter and actor, who began his career in the 1950s directing three films in Spain, followed by 24 Italian films. His best known film is La Grande Bouffe from 1973, starring Marcello Mastroianni, Michel Piccoli, Philippe Noiret and Ugo Tognazzi. Upon his death, Gilles Jacob, artistic director of the Cannes International Film Festival, said: "The Italian cinema has lost one of its most original artists, one of its most personal authors (...) No one was more demanding nor more allegorical than he in showing the state of crisis of contemporary man."
