Cook F**k Kill

Cook F**k Kill

Czech Republic, Slovak Republic 2019 Fiction cor 116 min.

A day in the life of Jaroslav, a handsome and seemingly good-natured son, father and husband. A timid ambulance driver, Jaroslav has a complex relationship with his wife, Blanka. She uses their three children as blackmail to get what she wants. He actually hides that he is pathologically jealous of his wife Blanka and very much afraid that she will leave him one day with their three children. Various versions of the way Jaroslav attempts to save his marriage are ingeniously told and unfold as a narrative, and roles and power dynamics are reversed, always culminating in a lot of blood and broken crockery. An absurdist drama depicting a conniving and violent tormentor, sexual and domestic abuse, inspired by extensive research into violence in men’s and women’s prisons conducted by director Mira Fornay.

Presented at International Film Festival Rotterdam.
