Germany, 2006, 89 min, German language, English subtitlesArmin Meiwes has a strange obsession. He longs to find another man to eat. Armin finds him on the internet. Together they eat his penis, after which Armin kills the man and eats the rest of him.What ‘Cannibal’ shows you is not brutal horror, but a story of love and loneliness. Marian Dora successfully ensured that ‘Cannibal’ never glorifies the violence and the gore is secondary to the very human story. What you see is sick, but the way it is portrayed almost provides you with an understanding of the situation the two men are in.
