Your rating: 0
0 0 votes

Bizarre black comedy about 15th-century Paris lawyer Richard Courtois (Firth) who decides to ply his trade in the country, only to find things stranger than he can imagine. His first case turns out to be defending a pig that’s accused of murdering a child. And the pig is owned by beautiful gypsy Samira (Annabi), so the idealistic lawyer can fall in love (or lust). There’s religion and superstition, there’s power struggles, there’s ignorance versus knowledge–things sound very modern indeed.
