Movie Info

Filmmaker Nikolaus Geyrhalter abstains from the use of voiceover narration and instead uses only images and sounds to chronicle the often unsettling ways in which food is processed. From vast mechanized farms to slaughterhouses, Geyrhalter presents it all and allows the audience to draw its own conclusions about the food people eat.

  • While there's a sober beauty to much of the film, it does drag on a little and you find yourself wondering what exactly is the point that Geyrhalter is trying to make.

  • This isn't a film which tells you what to think, and it doesn't propose any alternatives to the status-quo, yet it has the gift of making you look at reality anew.

  • Chilling but compelling stuff.

    January 24, 2008 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Compelling, distressing documentary about the weirdly mechanized world of industrial farms, slaughterhouses and other sources of mass-produced food has a surrealist edge that gives the film a dreamlike ambience.

    February 23, 2007 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Essentially, it's a Koyanisquaasti for metal and meat fetishists, and that's no bad thing.

    January 13, 2007 | Rating: 4/6 | Full Review…
  • The camera simply looks, with unflinching interest, as plants and animals are processed (in European industrial settings) into the food we eat. It's up to the viewer to distinguish tastes of horror, compassion, and awe at the efficiency involved.
