Given the rather blunt international title, it should come as no surprise to find that 70s Belgian art-house oddity Vase de Noces is about a guy getting jiggy with a piggy, but the content isn't just limited to (presumably simulated) bestiality: there's all sorts of other deviancy on display, some of which proves even more disturbing than the man-on-swine action. During the course of the film, the viewer is also treated to countless shots of mating farmyard birds, excessive full-frontal male nudity, some animal cruelty, and, towards the end, nauseating scenes of coprophagia.

Naturally, the promise of such wanton depravity and filth is bound to attract those film-fans who like their entertainment to push the boundaries, but be warned... even though this is seriously warped stuff, it is also an extremely boring experience thanks to director Thierry Zéno's insufferable artistic pretensions: shot in black and white without a single word of dialogue for the entire 80 minutes running time, the film regularly cuts from the more freaky fare to offer up lingering shots of chickens and turkeys strutting round the farm or mind-numbingly monotonous scenes of the farmer arranging jars, playing with a hoop and stick, preparing lunch and having a bath (all of which is accompanied by a suitably strange soundtrack consisting of unconvincing post-production sound effects, avant-garde choral music and surreal electronic bleeping).
