The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover (punctuated onscreen as The Cook The Thief His Wife & Her Lover) is a 1989 film written and directed by Peter Greenaway starring Richard Bohringer, Michael Gambon, Helen Mirren and Alan Howard in the titular roles. Tim Roth plays a comical sidekick named Mitchell. This film is a black comedy, known as much for its depiction of cannibalism and frontal nudity as for its lavish and often breathtaking cinematography and formalism.

Jean-Paul Gaultier designed the costumes, and Michael Nyman wrote the score. Giorgio Locatelli created the prop food.
