Synopsis

This film, with a somewhat dark humour, tells the infamous story of the contaminated blood in Groningen, in which three men drugged other men and injected them with their own HIV-contaminated blood. The director Tim Leyendekker, having found inspiration in the Banquet's discourse on love, has built his film in 7 parts, using a variety of narrative modes and philosophical, judicial and biological points of view to understand not only why men indulged in these abuses, but also why their victims returned to them despite their suspicions. If Feast reopens a file and borrows from the rhetoric of the trial that usually underlies documentary investigation, it is not to relativise the verdict of this case but to reinforce both its complexity and the viewer's critical vigilance.
