You wanted pig-boinking. You found it....
30 April 2009 | by CopafaceSee all my reviews

Now I will admit I am a huge fan of any film deemed disturbing, gross or wrong (my download collection includes all of the Guinea Pig movies, Un Chien Andalou, Nekromantik among many others) and it actually took me a while to hear of Vase de Noces. I eventually heard about it on Listverse on a list of Top Ten Most Disturbing Movies. It was not on the list but someone had suggested it in the comments. On looking it up on IMDb I knew instantly that it must be added to my library of gross movies... After hours battling with The Pirate Bay, Limewire and Youtorrent (I don't pay for anything. Sue me.) I managed to download a full VHSrip of the movie (which I will happily send to anyone who wants it :] message me) and I watched it alone one night... If, like me, you love the grossness of films like this, you will not be disappointed. Otherwise I wouldn't recommend it. I admit it was hard to concentrate on the artiness of the film when man-pig breeding and coprophagia is going on but I did take a few minutes to appreciate the surreal aura of the film. As artsy as it is you gotta admit, somebody's gotta be smoking something to come up with this idea. Then again, this seems like the kind of idea I would come up with... It is definitely an acquired taste and it takes someone with guts of steel to really appreciate it. But I say go for it! It can't be worse than Two Girls One Cup...
