An unassuming gem.
In the background, we see a glimpse of Mexico we rarely see in movies, devoid of cliches. In the foreground, two fine actors bringing depth to Luna's otherwise slight character study.
The overall result is not exactly dull, but given the talent and potential here, should have been more poignant and memorable.
Time goes by. I looked at my watch. The father and the daughter and the hog drive around some more. I looked at my watch again.
Glover is always pleasant to hang out with, Rudolph gets to show off her considerable dramatic chops, while Joel Murray makes a blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameo. And if you don't think you can feel sorry for a pig, wait for those last few minutes.
Luna wallows in emotional gloom like a pig in mud, coating the script in a layer after layer of regret to little purpose.
Sadly the movie is a failure. [Full review in Spanish]
An unpretentious and low key character study about a man and his pig. [Full review in Spanish]
A very emotional road movie that uses its locations in the best way possible. [Full review in Spanish]
There's no doubt that Diego Luna has a great sense of rythym and is maturing as a filmmaker. [Full review in Spanish]
"Mr. Pig" becomes an odd story of family reconciliation, one that isn't afraid to wallow in the emotional mud.
"Mr. Pig" warrants praise for refusing to offer up a convenient, unearned reconciliation.
