The Pig Fucking Movie


AKA One Man and his Pig
AKA Wedding Trough
AKA Vase de noces

Many have heard the boasting of the great enigma film-maker David Lynch and his talks of how Eraserhead is 100% original and uninspired, but I see flaws in that statement. It seems our very underrated obscure film "The Pig Fucking Movie" has some very... familiar scenes in it, to say the least. This is a Belgian Art-House film that is only existent through a VHS tape being reprinted onto a DVD which is in the trader's circle.


The plot is derived from what we, the viewers, take in visually. We meet a lonesome man who lives on a rural farm. He has no lover, no children, and no real responsibility as it seems. He spends all day performing surreal acts of the twisted sort and tending to his ill-natured perversions, such as morbidly putting baby doll heads on pigeons and organizing jars of weird relics similar to the Sawyer's residence in the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. In case you didn't know, this film is known by many names. This is one reason that attests as to why this film is so hard to get a hold of. One title aptly being The Pig Fucking Movie. So as you can guess, he falls in love with his sow in glorious black & white.

While this degree of zoophilia might turn people off from viewing this film, It really would be a shame for you to miss this experience. While it does hold itself a little bit pretentious by calling it art, most people don't examine the outer scenes. If you spend the majority of the runtime scoffing aloud and not paying attention to every grainy detail in this film, I could imagine getting pissed off too. Thierry Zéno lead an arcane film career. Not much is known, but it seems he has been blacklisted for creating this film.


When you take the context of the film, you are given a horrifying love story and a film of the utmost tragedy. When I was not basking in this film's horrible, wretched noises or grainy quality, I was paying attention to the soil. Every step along the way, Zéno has a way of visually capturing your attention on the most trivial of things. While you are supposed to be watching this weird, macabre love story, you find yourself staring off into the background items.


The Pig Fucking Movie is more or less, about a man that makes love to a pig and produces hybrid spawn. Hence my relation to Eraserhead. Mind you, I have more than one reason to suit my claim while The Pig Fucking Movie is not exempt from my cynical wrath. I can clearly derive a bit of Un chien andalou from some of the scenes. This film is a wonder to behold and will not leave your head for a while. Watch for a gratuitous amount of feathers being collected in jars for a symbolic good time. If for nothing else - a tragic love story that bleeds familiarity to another classic, Fando y Lis.
