In this Fellini-esque comedy, a psychic fishmonger foresees Amadeo’s death, so his fellow villagers rally to give him the best final seven days for which one could ask.
Amadeo is a good person. He lives in a small village in Valencia, and since his wife died, he has sacrificed himself taking care of his father-in-law, Agustín, who is disabled. As a result, he doesn’t participate much in the village’s social life. One day, Lolín the fishmonger has a magic foresight while decapitating an eel: Amadeo has only seven days to live. This fact sets in motion a series of events that will change his life completely.

Yes, delicious is the right word, not only for the delicious irony of the story, but also for all the food images in the film.
