HOW TASTY WAS MY LITTLE FRENCHMAN (1971) Nelson Pereira dos Santos
Answer: Not so tasty. Unless you're into '70s-era National Geographic titillation orr region-specific black humor so bone dry you barely know it's there. A Frenchman mistaken for an enemy Portuguese by an indigenous Brazilian tribe gets taken captive and willingly "goes native" for the duration of the film. Eventually, he goes commando too (squeamish beware: lots of flaccid dongs and droopy mammaries on display in this one). He hunts with the tribe, gets a red-dyed wife, realizes none of this will save him from becoming the main course in the group's upcoming victory feast. For a formerly uppity Frenchman, he doesn't much seem to mind. Neither will you, most likely.
