The wife of a barbaric crime boss engages in a secretive romance with a gentle bookseller between meals at her husband's restaurant.

The wife of an oafish restaurant owner becomes bored with her husband and considers an affair with a regular patron.

The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover reviews

Imagine the universe as a restaurant. The parking lot is the world. The kitchen is purgatory. The ladies's room is heaven. The dining room is hell. Hell is ruled over by Albert Spica, (Satan) excellently played by Michael Gobon. Dante is Michael (Alan Howard) a cataloger of French books. Beatrice, Dante's perfect woman, Georgina Spica (Helen Mirren) who is married to the devil.In the beginning, the cook (God) in the real world is seen kicked and smeared and fed dog feces by Gabon. He is humiliated and in tears, but He endures and eventually helps to further the love between Howard and MIrren. Sex, in its pure form, is looked at as something sacred. Gabon lords over everyone in his realm with a tyrant's fist, caring nothing about anyone or anything. He wants two three things out of life—superiority to all other being, food and sex, while Mirren, as a reluctant Persephone, sneaks off to be with Howard. A couple of times Gabon even finds his way into the sanctity of heaven, but this is only short-lived.The mood of the film is dark-black, heralded by brilliant reds or greens, and the tenor of an angelic child throughout. Every image is like a painting. Emotions creep in from all directions.This is a film that would never, no matter what year it was produced, have won an Academy Award. It is too refined, to subtle, too sensual, too intelligent.Watch it, rent it, buy it. It must be seen.

[In a book depository]
Georgina: [to Richard] He's dead. They stuffed him with pages torn from his favourite book. Could you cook him?
Georgina: Try the cock, Albert. It's a delicacy, and you know where it's been.
Albert: I think those Ethiopians enjoy starving. Keeps them thin and graceful.
