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 »

Could have been a big studio film
16 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a charming, funny, and smart movie which masquerades as a big studio film, in terms of production values, the care with which it was made and the performances of the cast.

But it is far more clever than most of what one might see from the majors, and the subject matter (a legendary performer who musically farted at will) is indy film all the way. If Steve Ochs is using this film as proof of his ability to stand up against any filmmaker out there, it should prove to be the perfect calling card. The fact that it's not full feature length is probably the only reason why this film wouldn't pick up wide distribution.

My congratulations to the filmmakers, it is a great success and great fun to watch.
