19:30 - 21:23

Marcos JORGE / Brazil, Italy / 2007 / 112min

The world is made of those who eat and those who get eaten. Raimundo Nonato finds an alternative way: he cooks. He cooks first in a bar, then in an Italian Restaurant and then in prison - how did he end up in jail? He cooks and learns how to get by in a society divided between those who eat and those who get eaten. What he learns, are a series of rules he uses to his advantage: in the end, the cook must also get his share of food. Estômago is an adult fable on power, sex and cooking.
