A sharp, dark comedy-infused documentary tale of war and food. One of its messages is “Enjoy war! Peace will be awful!”, and, if you didn’t know this one already, another is “War is won with bread, not weapons”. In this gourmet” film collage you will discover the number of Hungarian sausages that the Russian army has eaten, what kind of food Josip Broz enjoyed, and how much crackling has been polished off by the Russian generals… and a bunch of other spicy gastronomic statistics on military specialties.
