HE instantly approves of Carlota Pereda‘s Piggy (aka Cerdita) for the 1.37:1 aspect ratio. This rural horror thriller film, shot in Villanueva de la Vera between June and July of ’21, feels like a blend of Catherine Breillat‘s Fat Girl (’01) and Brian DePalma‘s Carrie (’76). Directed and written by Pereda, based on her short film.
Laura Galán plays the lead; Richard Holmes, Carmen Machi, Claudia Salas, Irene Ferreiro, Camille Aguilar and Pilar Castro costar.
Women who are merely fat or overweight are one thing; Galan is morbidly obese. Fair is fair.
