Estômago (2008), Marcos Jorge
Raimundo Nonato é um migrante nordestino que chega à cidade grande em busca de oportunidade. Aprende a profissão de cozinheiro, na qual se desenvolve e recebe uma melhor oportunidade de trabalho. Sua vida se complica ao se envolver com a prostituta Iria. O filme se passa entre o tempo atual na cadeia e a vida de Nonato no restaurante.

The world is made of those who eat and those who get eaten. Raimundo Nonato, 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.
