– The People's Movies,
"A meditative study in precision, pain, loneliness and redemption."
Carlos is the most prestigious tailor in Granada, Spain. His life is a study in details, from the meticulous suits he creates for wealthy clients to the macabre murders he executes in the shadows. He performs these gruesome acts, including dining on the women he kills, without guilt or remorse. When Nina, a beautiful young immigrant from Romania, comes looking for her missing twin sister, she awakens in Carlos a kind of love he'd long since written off. As their relationship builds, based on secrets and deception, Nina's pure innocence will become undeniable, even by Carlos, a man driven by a dark secret. Cannibal is, in the end, a demon's love story.

Creepy! This Cannibal is a refined tailor in Grenada, Spain. This film poses the question of whether a cannibal can overcome its lust for flesh for the love of a woman. There is some genuine tension in some scenes where one wonders, "Will he, or won't he" situations.
