The film starts with a classic premise. An overweight, self­conscious teen is teased and harassed by a clique of girls while swimming when she’s on holiday. But the plot twists when a mysterious psychopath attacks her tormentors. The victim is then faced with a choice:join up with her saviour or turn him in. Piggy explores the grey areas ofmorality, with a bullied character and her burning desire for revenge. Carlota Pereda’s film stands out from similar works through her boldly frontal approach to filming bodies and violence, resulting in an abrupt and uncompromising film.
