Veteran Estonian helmer Peeter Simm (“Good Hands”) looks on the bright side of desperation with his chirpy, comic road movie “Fed Up!”, about oddball characters journeying from Leipzig, Germany, to Tallinn, Estonia. Commercial-flavored pic has bowed in Estonia and started its fest career at Shanghai, but it won’t travel far beyond the Baltics or Germany as a theatrical release.
In Leipzig, depressed trucker Kominsky (Heio von Stretten) is assigned by his shady boss Radtke (Udo Schenk) to drive a rig to Tallinn. A mix-up at a gas station results in bank-robbery loot being stored in the truck, so young thief Hunt (Rosmus Koljujarv) and his born-again getaway driver Manfred (Thomas Schmauser, eye-catching) must pursue Kominsky by road and sea. Complicating matters is Kominsky’s cello-playing hitchhiker Stella (Maarja Jakobson), who is headed home after being, per title, fed up with life in Germany. Caper’s generally frothy tone is somewhat undercut by the participants’ downbeat backstories, but the stories do enable thesps von Stretten and Schmauser in particular to add extra half dimensions to essentially stock types. Tech package is frictionless in an efficient if lightweight, TV-movie way.
