The world is made of those who eat and those who get eaten. Raimundo Nonato (played by actor João Miguel), our protagonist, finds an alternative way: he cooks. He cooks first in a bar, then in an Italian Restaurant and then in prison – how did he end up in jail? He cooks and learns how to get by in a society divided in two between those who eat and those who get eaten. What he learns are a series of rules he uses to his advantage: in the end, the cook must also get his share of food and only he knows which part tastes best. Estômago is an adult fable on power, sex and cooking.

Prof. Dário Borim (Dept. of Portuguese) will lead a discussion after the movie.
