Zum letzten Mal

Information

The setting: a small Northern English town in 1947. A few local businessmen want to host a banquet in honor of the impending marriage of Princess Elisabeth and Prince Philip. Of course, this requires a large, good piece of meat for the occasion. But food is rationed at the time and meat hard to get. The idea is hatched to illegally mast a pig for the occasion: Betty, a pink dream of an animal. However the chiropodist, Gilbert Chilvers hears about the plan and on the prompting of his wife decides to steal Betty. More mayhem ensues, but who can slaughter a loveable pig with such doleful blue eyes.
