Movie Summary

Rating:
Not Available
Porcile, or Pigsty, is a provocative 1969 film brought to you by Italian filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini (Salo, or the 120 Days of Sodom, A Thousand and One Nights). The film follows two independent stories, both of which provide an analysis of human nature, specifically the extent to which man can be violent and lack empathy. The first story centers around a young cannibal (Pierre Cl'menti) whose craving for human flesh sees no limit. He is taken into custody when it is revealed he killed his own father. As he awaits his execution, he claims "I killed my father, I ate human flesh and I quiver with joy." The second story centers around an emotionally detached German boy named Julian (Jean-Pierre L'aud) who is unable to form basic relationships with human beings. Interestingly enough, he befriends the pigs outside his house and begins sleeping with them in their pen. This dark film also includes performances by Franco Citti and Ugo Tognazzi. A definite must see for all those who enjoy disturbing film about man's ability to destroy.moreless
