The Cook, The Thief, His Wife, And Her Lover DVD (1989)
When ill-bred mobster Albert Spica (Michael Gambon) acquires an upscale French restaurant in London, he dines there nightly, effectively scaring off the clientele with his bad manners. His wife, Georgina (Helen Mirren), is especially disgusted by him, and soon begins an affair with another restaurant guest, Michael (Alan Howard). Despite their efforts to keep it a secret, however, Spica finds out about their trysts, and he plans to exact a terrible revenge. Food, color coding, sex, murder, torture and cannibalism are the exotic fare in this beautifully filmed but brutally uncompromising modern fable. Look for a young Tim Roth in a minor role. Helen Mirren has never been LOVELIER nor sexier than in this film. This is the 'UNCUT VERSION'. Delivered sealed in case with artwork as shown on our page.
