Pigsty (DVD) DVD


Decades on from its release, and featuring an all-star cast that includes Jean-Pierre Laud, Anne Wiazemsky, Franco Citti, Pierre Clmenti, and Marco Ferreri, Pigsty [Porcile] remains one of Pier Paolo Pasolini's most controversial and wilfully provocative works – a deranged parody of cinema as revolutionary act. It comprises parallel stories: (1) Clmenti and Citti as cannibalistic savages who rampage a world outside of any distinct time or place, and who push against the boundaries of human morality; (2) Godard-regulars Laud and Wiazemsky as a romantically engaged couple in a contemporary Germany painted as a morass of industrialisation, fascist impulse, and bestial instincts. Special Features: New high-definition transfer in the film's original aspect ratio Original Italian theatrical trailer Newly translated optional English subtitles Illustrated booklet featuring rare archival imagery, the words of Pasolini, and more!

Drama from acclaimed Italian director Pier Paolo Pasolini. The film contains two parallel stories. One is set at an undetermined, possibly mythical, point in the past and follows the inhuman rampage of a pair of cannibals played by Pierre Clémenti and Franco Citti. The second story follows a wealthy family of German industrialists. Herr Klotz (Alberto Lionello) has amassed a fortune but his son, Julian (Jean-Pierre Léaud), takes little interest in his father's business and the rivalries it entails. Neither does he appear to have much interest in his fiancée, Ida (Anne Wiazemsky). Julian much prefers to lie down in the family's pigsty. His behaviour seems unfathomable, but is it?
