In her third feature film, “Cook, F**k, Kill”, Slovakian filmmaker Mira Fornay (“My Dog Killer”), is dealing with the challenging subject of domestic violence. Through an absurd drama she’s following one day of Jaroslav K (Jaroslav Plesl), who’s obsessed with sex, cooking and is also a perpetrator of domestic violence. Pathologically jealous of his wife Blanka, Jaroslav employs abuse, deceit and terror that lead to a family tragedy.
Seen through the prism of a metaphor, the film is an intimate story about family or “the most aggressive group within a society, with the exception of the army and the police”, as Fornay states. The director employs stark and edgy black humour in order to expose the responsibility of her hero and by taking a step further, she presents the story as a game about games and the “family programming” that incubates abuse.
