The Fed One once again displayed Mimica’s preoccupations with war themes and universal questions about human nature and civilization. He dealt with those topics in this provocative story about a group of prisoners who although not subjected to physical violence, suffer from sophisticated psychological tortures. Instead of hard labor, they mostly spend their time in contemplation. The film is a combination of naturalism and metaphor burdened with pretentious symbolism, unraveling “great truths”. Overall, Mimica’s direction seems surprisingly lukewarm.
