An irreverent comedy from the production company of Monty Python's Eric Idle, Leon the Pig Farmer is a cult classic in Europe. The movie's zany story is set in motion when Leon Geller ( Mark Frankel), a sensitive Jewish boy from London, accidentally learns that he is the product of artificial insemination. Leon's search for his biological parents leads him to the still more startling discovery of a sperm bank mix-up proving that he is the son of a Yorkshire pig farmer! The inevitable confusion results in a comic Jewish identity crisis.

 

U Critical Acclaim

"Leon the Pig Farmer was a clear case of script and verve over microscopic budget, something that's sadly too rare in British film-making, which usually manages the small budget, but little else. Mark Frankel heads up an eclectic cast dealing with sex, pigs and estate agents in a film that appears to have been a lot of fun to make."
-Almar Haflidason, BBC
