Audience Reviews for Grisen (The Pig)

Simply perfect w/ enough sly wit to make the "message" it touts not seem like propaganda. I'll be showing this to lots of people.

A remarkably enjoyable film. It seemingly tackles an issue about tolerance, religious or otherwise, but really I think that theme is secondary. I found it more interesting that the entire argument seemed silly in the light of the characters being in the hospital, with possibly serious medical conditions. We see, in the end, that what they were "fighting about" (notice the patients never confront each other) was trivial in the grand scheme of things. A funny, witty, charming film. My favorite of all the nominees.
