WORLD FOOD DAY 2016
The title of the film is a deliberate double entendre: a poor diet is something which needs to be taken seriously. The atmosphere is somewhere between Tarantino and the Coen brothers; the story tells of the effects of a poor diet in literal terms – death. Rather than being a direct attack on junk food in itself, the film is a warning: an unhealthy diet, combined with the absence of physical activity, produces millions of silent deaths around the world. They may not make the headlines, but they cause pain and suffering just the same.
Did you know?
How many times did you walk in a diner like this? Would you have thought that this one was lifeless and empty?
Well, yes. Finding a location diner wasn't easy. Eventually we found a suitable one in a remote part of Cornwall which provided a great shell but was a good challenge for the art department.
We brought our very own Molly's diner back in business, even if only for a fews days.
