Review

Ambrose, an African-American farmer in Georgia, starts crossing the Mexican border with Howard but the police are startled to see Howard in a regular car. Howard is Eubank’s beloved pig. After twists and turns including the police cheating him, Eubanks transfers Howard to a research institute in Mexico because he thinks they will take good care of his genes. When he sees the situation has changed, he gets upset and decides to take Howard back home. Eubank’s daughter gets involved and takes care of her fragile father and Howard who’s more loved than herself. A road movie involving a father, daughter and a pig questions the various love relationships. Diego Luna, a most promising Mexico director, tells a heart-warming story of life and death, and humans and animal. It is a noteworthy road movie, simple but emotionally resonant. (LEE Sang-yong)
