DIRECTOR ABOUT THE FILM


ABOUT THE DIRECTOR


“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

 

“The film’s biggest strength lies in its technique. There is clear attention to detail demonstrated by the positioning of actors and scenes to create beautiful cinematic images. Throughout the film, there exists a visual parallel between the character pairs of Matej and Janez and Ana and Veronika in which the bodies mirror each other in their placement within scenes, underscoring the characters’ relationships in a visually striking manner…. Audiences of the film will feel a tinge of nostalgia as they relate to the characters and the relationships portrayed on screen.” Emily Pitter
