Synopsis:
Headstrong senorita Silvia (Penelope Cruz) becomes pregnant to village Mummy's-boy Jose (Jordi Mulla). Silvia's father has left town and her mother Carmen (Anna Galiena) is forced to become the town prostitute. Jose's overbearing mother Conchita (Stefania Sandrelli) fears her son will marry the daughter of a scarlet woman and takes action...she hires sexy, young Raul (Javier Bardem) who works in the ham factory and enjoys nude bullfighting, to seduce Sylvia. What ensues is a series of chaotic and frantic couplings, testosterone overload, breasts that taste of ham and a duel to the death with a side of bacon.

Bonkers sex farce with extra garlic - Jamon Jamon review by Kurtz

Spoiler Alert
17/06/2009

Early sighting of Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem both up to their shapely necks in lust and dirty dealing. Cruz gets to run around in the rain and be ardently wooed by most of the men in the cast (no change there, then), whilst the director leaves little to the imagination in his portrayal of Bardem as the local stud (nude bullfighting, anyone??) Bed-hopping, jealous rage, oedipal moments, a parrot voyeur and a suicidal piglet, you name it, it’s all there. There are a number of surreally comic moments, e.g. a fight to the death with a leg of ham, but we’re well into melodrama territory even before the OTT final tableau.
