Review

Hoshi, a class teacher of 6th grade of elementary school suggests the students to raise a pig and eat when it is bigger. The children name the pig P Zzang and take care of it. But as time goes by, they have a heart to P Zzang and think they can’t eat it. So they discuss to make it clear before their graduation how the P Zzang should be taken care of. Two different ideas are tightly confronted: one is to send it to the butchery and the other is to give to the 3rd grade student who wants it. This film is based on a true story in Japan for showing how much the food that human must take for a living has meant to us. We do not think the original appearance of the food on our everyday table. Especially, we don’t recognize that the meat was originally a life with the same pumping heart of human. The film makes us to face this fact through children. It even doesn’t have one protagonist on narrative for maximizing its theme, but just focuses the procedure of the pig raising project. The character’s each story and desire is minimized but connected each other. In this way, it shows clearly what it actually is that human raise and eat animals and makes us reflect us upon ourselves.
