FEED ME WITH YOUR WORDS

Synopsis

In order to perfect his research, Robert travels to Italy, where he meets an unusual homeless man. Overwhelmed and confused by the unexpected encounter with that mysterious man, Robert begins to follow him and disappears without a trace. Robert’s disappearance forces his father Janez to call his elder son Matej after years of no communication between them. Despite their unresolved conflicts from the past, Matej decides to help his father and they leave for Italy together. However, since Janez cannot leave his demented wife Irina home alone, Matej’s wife Ana and their daughter Veronica temporarily move in with Irina.

REVIEWS

“The three-part story of a family of divided loyalties, whose protagonists constantly challenge one another only to realize they were looking for a genuine connection, operates on multiple levels and is anything but stereotypical, boring or already seen. Above all, the film is a legitimate representation of curious ideas and a promising filmmaking approach.”
Igor Harb, Vikend

 

“In style of some of his previous films, Turk again constructs a multi-layered structure tied into a solid whole through well placed interactions, events and gestures between its parts. The whole is thoughtfully presented on the level of photography, which acts as a connecting medium throughout the three stories along with the excellent musical score by Chris Eckman.”
Denis Valič, Pogledi

 

“Feed me With Your Words continues down the road Turk established in his earlier works, and takes several decisive steps forward in its formal and storytelling ambition.”
Špela Barlič, Ekran

 

“Overall, the acting is simply superb.”
Uroš Smasek, Večer

 

“Neither a stirring family saga nor a mystery crime flick, neither an intimate existential story nor a new-age drama, the film is instead all these at once.”
Ženja Leiler, Pogledi
