Jamón Synopsis

José is a teenage pig living with his human family in a Spanish town. As the only trottered member of his family, José struggles to perform some of the simplest tasks carried out by the five-fingered hands of his parents and siblings, but it’s his place in society that provides López’s principal character with his biggest struggles. Reluctant to embrace his swine instincts, it takes an encounter with another of his kind before he can truly face up to the realities of his existence and even then things don’t work out quite how José would have hoped.

Quite freaky even if  the animation doesn't imply  it otherwise.  Somehow the short film tries to convey the message that  being different from everyone else is a dilemma and a curse. Jose somehow gets his liberation upon discovering that someone else is like him, although further on discovers a horrible truth. The decision to mask his true being, while being against his will, is for his own good and safety.  For me, it  was disheartening that  the ending isn't what is supposed to be but nonetheless this film is still a must-watch!

  • The plot of the film is a reality that everyone faces once in their life or for some, their whole life. Exerting effort to be accepted  and be called "NORMAL"; sadly for Jose, he learned that his new found happiness in discovering his identity will lead him to a more traumatic childhood.
