Tomas and Ingrid, two young leftist radicals, are living in a off relationship. Tomas is employed to edit and compile the diaries and correspondence of Dr. Arthur Bauer. A middle-aged German exiled revolutionary. The work is confidential. Tomas is required to move in with Bauer, his wife Francesca and the housekeeper. Tomas is not only asked to edit and compile the archives, he is also to keep the beautiful Francesca company, if she so pleases. In the library Tomas learns about a hidden tape-recorder, containing recordings and pm's by Bauer.

Essayist, novelist, critic, cinephile, and all-around intellectual dynamo Susan Sontag made her directorial debut with this definition-defying, dryly funny psychological serio-comedy, the result of a Swedish studio’s invitation to her to make a film in Stockholm. The result, revolving around the quadrangular relationship between an arrogant ex-revolutionist German intellectual exile, his elegant wife, their Swedish student secretary, and the earnest secretary’s bride-to-be, is a roundelay of partner-swapping that gradually drifts towards uncharted territory and gamesmanship that broaches the surreal and violent. Defying literal-minded interpretation, Duet for Cannibals is both an illustrative companion to Sontag’s criticism, and introduction of a startlingly original filmmaker.
