Information and Film Reviews for Leon the Pig Farmer the Movie

Staff rating


Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

Dry comedic satire about identity. Leon Geller has never quite fitted into his parents' comfortable Jewish society and no wonder--Leon accidentally discovers he is the product of artificial insemination. And what's more, the lab made a mistake and Leon isn't a true Geller after all. His father is actually a genial (and Gentile) Yorkshire pig farmer named Brian Chadwick, who cheerfully welcomes Leon as his long-lost son. All four parents try to cope while Leon moves bewilderedly amongst them. Film tends to be too timid in its satire but still has its witty moments.
