Two unrelated tales that explore the darker side of the human condition. The first is set in medieval times as a wandering soldier descends into cannibalism, developing a loyal band of blood-thirsty followers. It stars Pierre Clementi. The second focuses on a successful businessman, and son of a former Nazi, whose confused passions lead him to find more pleasure with pigs than his fiancee. Truffaut regular Jean-Pierre Leaud plays the lead. Pigsty shadows the later satire of The Decameron or savagery of Salo and bears comparison to Bunuel. Its comments on the savage beast within man remain startling and shocking for modern audiences.
