Grisjakten (English: "The Pig Hunt") is a 1970 Swedish film, made by Jonas Cornell after a 1968 novel by P. C. Jersild starring Hans Alfredsson and Keve Hjelm The film's genre is troublesome, but it's an absurd told story on an absurd matter. It's not black-comedy, as it isn't a comedy at all. (At least not obviously) It's rather a dry and serious but absurd drift with the Swedish bureaucracy, as well as of what democracy really is, as of its time. Films with some kind of political message were not rare during the 1960's and 1970's, but this film contains no such left or right message.
