"Disco Pigs and Sucking Dublin"
by Enda Walsh
 

The Irish in Film
A Complete List of Irish Films

 Title  Disco Pigs
An Irish Clockwork Orange. Many complain that films about Ireland are quaint and lightweight. This film will stop their whining. The two main characters, Pig and Runt, disabuse the people around them, making a mockery of so-called Irish charm. These are not the friendly Irish of tourist ads. But why are they so mean? Perhaps we are to believe that society made them what they are. After all, didn't society frown upon their young love? Harsh and difficult to watch. Link to reviews Click picture
