`The Pig Farmer'
Is A Kosher Caper

MICHAEL ELKIN SPECI AL TO THE JEWISH NEWS

kosher pig? It just
doesn't sound .. .
kosher.
But it is comical,
which is at the very heart of
the new film Leon the Pig
Farmer.
Gary Sinyor's movie,
which he co-directed and
produced with Vadim Jean
and co-wrote with Michael
Normand, is a warm and
wacky comedy about an edgy
English Jewish gent whose
latest discovery of how to
breed kosher hams brings
out the true ham in him.
It's deliciously tongue-in-
cheek, and Mr. Sinyor savors
the light-hearted lunacy. "I
was on an El Al flight and
they served up something
that was made to look like
shrimp, but obviously
wasn't," recalls Mr. Sinyor.
"My question is, 'Why
bother?' "
What bothers Gary Sinyor,
raised in a traditional Jew-
ish home in England, is
when Jews who already
have decided to maintain
kashrut try to disguise their
choices, trafficking in trefe-
looking items.
"Being kosher is .. .
kosher," says Mr. Sinyor.
"It's cool to be kosher."
Gary Sinyor is hot right
now, currently working on
another movie, Soli- taire for
Two ("No Jewish people but
it does have guys with
beards") while "pigging out"
on the success of Leon the Pig
Farmer as it scares big at
box offices around the world.
But breeding a kosher pig

A

Michael Elkin is the enter-

tainment editor of the Jewish
Exponent in Philadelphia.

is not Leon's lone dilemma.
He must come to terms with
the sudden discovery that he
is a product of artificial in-
semination and that his real
parents are not Jews.
Talk about breeding .. .
"The film is also about
people pretending to be what
they're not," says Gary
Sinyor.
Mr. Sinyor does not pre-
tend that the film has found
favor with everybody. Some
Jewish communities
"haven't gotten behind it,"
he says.
Funny thing, says Mr.
Sinyor, it seems that some
Jews miss the satire. Born to
an Egyptian Jewish father
and a Syrian Jewish mother,
Gary Sinyor wants his au-
diences to celebrate the dif-
ferences between them and
gentiles.

"Enjoy the differences is
my approach to Judaism,"
he says.
Those Jews who differ with
him just don't get it, he
claims. "The only people
who attack the film are what
I call anti-Semitic Jews, of
the extreme left, those lib-
eral to the point where they
don't want to be Jewish."
What Mr. Sinyor wants for
his film, which stars
Maryam ("The Living
Daylights") D'Abo and Mark
Frank el of TV's "Sisters,"
is a fair chance.
Audiences are not asked to
buy a pig in the poke with
his film. "Leon the Pig
Farmer," says Mr. Sinyor,
"has broken box office
records — even in places
where you don't see any
Jews."
