Food, glorious food! Some of the most sumptuous and involving films revolve around that most common of acts: eating. 18 MEALS is an omnibus film of criss-crossing stories divided into three segments; breakfast, lunch and dinner. Jorge Coira's debut feature, shot over nine days in Santiago de Compostela has enough tasty portions to please audiences. Amongst Coira's expansive ensemble are aging street musician Edu, a pair awaking from a one-night stand, a businessman visiting his closeted homosexual brother and a lonely housewife, Sol. Victor and Sol are two of 18 MEALS' most fascinating characters as they each hide something - his sexuality, her depression - from those around them. Best of all is Pedro Alsono as Vladimir, a local celebrity actor who makes a meal for a mystery woman who never arrives. Who hasn't gone to a lot of trouble to do something extra special for someone just to have it go unappreciated? Make sure you stuff yourself silly with cuisine before the movie or else your taste buds will be salivating after the first shot.

Jose Coira's sophomore feature, '18 Meals,' is something of an overstuffed buffet, and as with many plentiful repasts, the problem isn't with the individual dishes but the way they play off each other. Developed from a series of improv sketches, pic has the clever idea of following a series of characters through one day's breakfasts, lunches and dinners, cognizant that mealtimes are the most social moments of day. Though Coira, also editing, does a fine job juggling so many stories, certain morsels are inevitably served undercooked while others are overdone. Still, this congenial (multi-)chamber piece should get fest nibbles.

A lovely opening sets the tone for things to come, situating the action in the Galician city of Santiago de Compostela and lightly philosophizing on the number of meals served each day, and their role in peoples' lives: 'half a million choices to change the taste of life.' Eleven main stories follow with 17 principal characters, some intersecting, others operating largely independent of the rest. It's an overly ambitious number to keep in motion, and introducing new characters in the dinner segment seriously over-eggs the pudding, though the early scenes especially have an intriguing flavor.
