An absurdly funny short film about a grotesque dinner party

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

Denis Villeneuve's allegorical short film Next Floor plunges us into an opulent dinner party in which the carnivorous rich gorge themselves on a panoply of meats. But all that consumption comes with a consequence, one that pushes the film further into unreality.

Beautifully shot with some truly stomach-churning food porn, Next floor was inspired by an idea by Phoebe Greenberg and won the Critics Week Canal Plus Grand Prix for Best Short Film at the Cannes International Film Festival in 2008.
