Directed in a highly stylized manner, P-Word Pizza recounts the meeting between an overweight, self-absorbed, delusional
delivery boy and a group of Asian mobsters. A thought provoking film explores vulgar and taboo issues - racism, homophobia, sizeism, violence, crime - thus awaking
both discomfort and amusement
In this dark comedy director Yelena Sabel expesses the human condition through a clever mix of obscene
dialogues between the characters that illustrate the intolerance and chauvinistic traits of human-beings in the world where
manners are overlooked, individuality is underrated, reality is twisted and wrath is instantaneous. The story is infused with references to societal stereotypes and seamlessly interlinking the delivery boy's
wide-eyed innocence and the Asian gangster's mockery.
Its clever mix of deadpan and animated expressions is the product of actor and script delicious symmetry
The director strenght lies in the
way she combines snappy dialogues, gangster glorification, humor, pop culture, daring racial typecasting and social references
can be seen as an homage to Tarantino.
