MADONNA'S PIG

by Frank Van Passel

synopsis

Twenty-five year old Antoine is a sales agent of a computerized pig fertilization machine. After a bizarre accident involving a World War I soldier, he gets stuck in Madonna, an isolated and scenic village paralyzed by a conflict concerning a new road. The local school teacher Marie, the dead soldiers and an explosive Madonna statue confront him with a new choice: choosing love or a safe, empty existence full of useless goals such as selling a mechanic gigolo-pig.
