In 1988, Manoel de Oliveira makes what is possibly the most irreverent film in his career, The Cannibals, an operatic adaptation of a novel by Álvaro Carvalhal with screenplay by João Paes. Luís Miguel Cintra and Leonor Silveira (in her first collaboration with the master, and at 17) star in this wild satire, an aristocratic farce with all the necessary ingredients: a perverse viscount, an abandoned boyfriend, an innocent girl, plus (an extra) a climax Brian Yuzna would envy.
