Family Meals (Cro, 2012)


Dana Budisavljević

Nije ti zivot vDo you remember when was the last time you talked to your parents? What did you talk about? Did you go a step beyond weather forecast and daily politics?

Can a conversation about buried family secrets help you eat without cramps in your stomach? Can a failed birthday cake help you embrace the past? A birthday celebration brings together an ordinary four member family five years after their last gathering.

They start questioning what made them turn away from each other. Through the ritual of family meals, the film unveils how important it is to feel accepted by our loved ones.
