As a Dane, the subject of free speech vs Religion, have been an issue, that have been heavily debated ever since the "Muhammad crises" in 2005 (when a news paper published 12 drawings of the prophet Muhammad). Whether you believe in one thing or the other, this film really raises a key issue, in a humorist way. the whole problem is the fine line between free speech, freedom and respect towards others, this film really illustrates that problematic issue.
the plot evolves around a picture of a pig, which is removed from an elderly patients room at a hospital, on the request of his fellow patients son, who is a Muslim.
whether or not Muslims would be offended by a picture of a pig, is not really the point of the film, no, the pig merely works as metaphor, for the relationship between two different cultures on a colliding course.
I rate this film 10 out of 10, its well produced, but more importantly, it raises a very important issue, that anyone who lives in the western world may encounter, which is, where should the line between personal freedom vs respect towards others be drawn.
