I disagree. "Literal" in what sense?
Perhaps if you only concentrate on what is being said, it could seem heavy-handed compared to the rest of the movie. But surely the setting and the situation are surreal enough? A bourgeois house in the middle of nowhere, with the family dining and having their self-righteous, purely intellectual disputes almost (ie. unless their border is crossed) oblivious to the real horror happening all around them...
I thought this was a terrific sequence, fitting the main theme of the film (oversimplifying: war leads to madness), and its atmosphere, very well.
What's happening? Wh... Where am I?
