Set during the political volatility of between-the-wars Italy, this amazing film introduces an unlikely hero: a portly, chauvinistic seaplane pilot with the head of a pig and the heart of Rhett Butler. Porco has deserted from the Italian military -“I’d rather be a pig than a fascist”- Now works as a freelance bounty hunter and scourge of aerial pirates and he is assisted by a feisty female mechanic and a director who truly believes that pigs might fly <3
