Storyline

Based on a true story set around turn-of-the-century France, it follows the lives of two men: Joseph Pujol and Dr. Marcel Baudouin. Pujol was an entertainer at the Moulin Rouge who was gifted with a unique backside, which could take in and release air in measured increments thus producing amazing and humorous noises. Dr. Baudouin was obsessed with Joseph's "instrument" and pursued him doggedly for many years, ultimately resulting in his undoing. Written by Steve Ochs

Trivia

The hearts in the butcher shop scene were, in fact, actual pig hearts. Far from being disgusted, the actors fiddled with them happily between takes. See more »

Unusual topic hilariously presented
25 November 2005 | by (balabusta) – See all my reviews

The production values are perfect (sound, picture, scenery, lighting,, etc.) The actors are excellent. The story is subtly hilarious. I didn't realize for a while that it was a comedy and when I did I roared with surprise. Taken from a true story, it seems unbelievable in its novelty, but that made it all the more fascinating. The costumes were marvelous. I hope to see more from this gifted writer-director-producer. At last something a little different. Without writing any spoilers, I will say that it touches on a subject that is universal to all of us, yet rarely spoken of in proper company. Viewed in a local small theater in Los Angeles, the audience was comprised of all ages, and all seemed to enjoy it equally.
