The article explores common motifs and narrative strategies which appear in the work of the 2nd century CE Latin author, Apuleius, and the 20th century Spanish film director, Luis Bunuel. The use of narration to delay nutrition is a vital starting point for the comparative analysis. Uses and abuses of food and food consumption in both A and B intensify the bizarre atmospheres of the stories. By means of diversionary and supernatural tales the chosen storytellers encourage their audiences to embrace credulity and to question the reality of appearances.
