Fill your heart with french fries

“Fill your heart with French Fries” is a short sad comedy written and directed by Tamar Glezerman, about a woman who gets dumped by her girlfriend at a fast food joint, and, too sad to go home, just stays there for a week. Inspired by the real life story of a Chinese woman who spent seven days inside a local KFC after her boyfriend broke up with her, Tamar Glezerman’s perfectly-titled Fill your heart with French fries, is a touching short examining heartbreak and its repercussions in modern times. Initially drawn to the story of the dumped KFC lady because she found it to be a “really endearing and extremely earnest epitome of that state of mind”, it would be a couple of years before Glezerman actually committed this narrative to film.
