The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover (1989)

Starring: Helen Mirren, Michael Gambon and Ciaran Hinds as Cory.
Synopsis: The wife of a barbaric crime boss engages in a secretive romance with a gentle bookseller between meals at her husband's restaurant. Food, colour coding, sex, murder, torture and cannibalism are the exotic fare in this beautifully filmed but brutally uncompromising modern fable which has been interpreted as an allegory for Thatcherism. Not for the faint of heart!
