Piglets

Germany, 1998 (MIFF 1999, Fiction)

Director: Luc Feit

A couple making love in one room whilst Grandmother makes trouble with a power drill in the other. Not much in itself but the film is refreshingly irreverent in its style and the humour is original and unexpected (although possibly a little cheap in places). A funky, fun film. Handcuffs, condoms, telephones and... Piglets.
