An award-winning cult classic from the production company of Monty Python's Eric Idle, this irreverent British comedy follows Leon Geller (Mark Frankel), a sensitive Jewish boy from London who accidentally learns that he is the product 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.
"Sharply shot, cut and performed, this very smart comedy proffers plenty of wittily absurd lines, a wealth of offbeat visual gags, and more than its fair share of invention." - Time Out
"How funny can a movie be about the world's first kosher pig farmer? Funnier than you'd expect." - Widgett Walls, Need Coffee
