(a film review by Mark R. Leeper)

PIG sounds like a story about the touching relationship between a man and his pig. Truffle-hunting pigs can rarely be found, but the truffle makes it worth it. In fact, it involves a truffle-hunting pig and at the market price of truffles his talent makes extremely valuable. This would not be a very original situation for a thriller, but you will probably not find a thriller with the same MacGuffin. If the prize were a diamond necklace, it would be a dull cliched story. But you just do not see many pig stories. If the film were CHARLOTTE'S WEB or BABE it would be a different story.

Released theatrically 07/16/21; available on DVD from Netflix and on various streaming services. Rating: +2 (-4 to +4), or 7/10.
