An exciting movie is currently showing on Mola TV , called Percy. The fun thing is because this is like the stories in the religious scriptures about David and Goliath, so the storyline of Percy’s film also seems to resemble the stories in the holy book.

The story of a farmer who can be said to be utterly helpless when faced with the power of a global giant corporation, but because of his persistence in the end it is able to shake the giant company.

Percy’s film is taken from a true story, so that the audience can feel and get inspiration when they finish watching this film.

For those who are still in doubt, is it true that watching this film will get an interesting experience, apart from ordinary viewing? So it’s good to first read the synopsis and a brief review below.

Percy Schmeiser (played by Christopher Walken ) is a farmer who continues his family’s way of life as a farmer. He worked hard from morning to night, tending his fields which were fields inherited from his family. From the start, they have the habit of saving their plant seeds, from each season to each year, because heretics have been taught that if you want good yields, you must choose the best plant seeds. The best seeds will appear to develop in time, so they often mix the seeds of the past season and year, then carry out trials, in order to produce strong, pest-resistant plants and produce good harvests.

Percy Schmeiser himself does not feel surprised if there is a season, there is a superior crop, compared to the previous harvest. In his mind, it could be that this time, the mixture he produced had the right composition and succeeded in producing an extraordinary harvest. Following the tradition of his family, he stored the harvest seeds and used them for the planting season in the future.

Percy Schmeiser himself was shocked when one day he got a letter from a company engaged in plant engineering (transgenetic corps). The contents of the letter were that he was required under a court order to give permission to an employee of the company known as Monsanto Canada Inc (Monsanto) to take samples from his field, because it was suspected that the canola plants he planted contained something from Monsanto.

Feeling that he did not have any mistakes, he remained calm and let the situation get out of hand, and finally he went to a lawyer to do legal consultation. Attorney Jackson Weaver also provided legal advice, so that Percy Schmeiser should make peace efforts. In this case, Percy is the one who has to pay compensation to Monsanto. Jackson Weaver (played by Zach Braff ) then explained clearly the risks Percy would face, if he decided to put up a fight.

Percy’s story, attracted the attention of an environmental activist named Rebecca Saiau (played by Christina Ricci ), and finally managed to approach Percy to help him campaign this problem to many people, and of course Percy will get a donation to help pay the fees during the court process.

Well, this is where the excitement of the story builds. The storyline was built slowly but surely giving many answers and also the fighting spirit of the farmers who felt aggrieved by the methods used by Monsanto, who seemed to “force” the farmers to buy their seeds.

Percy Schmeiser himself is someone who is very strong. If he has decided he wants to do something, then he will run it to completion. He is also a calculating person in carrying out his actions, with a sharp mindset and far ahead compared to the average farmer.

There are several interesting things from this Percy film, namely:

This film is a tribute to the late Percy Schmeiser, who died in October 2020;
In this film, the audience is invited to witness the power of the peasants against the giant companies that control world agriculture;
Not everyone agrees with the use of plant engineering, many claim that through engineering, it will destroy the balance of nature and also ultimately damage the metabolism of the human body, resulting in many new types of diseases. This matter is still a debate that never ends.
The Percy vs Monsanto case is a case that becomes a case study in law in Canada and is also a material for legal analysis in countries that have a justice system that resembles the Canadian judicial system.
Percy film director, Clark Johnson , has directed many films and series that have attracted the attention of audiences, including Boycott (2001), The Walking Dead, also acting as an actor. So that with this power he has, making Percy’s film line even though it awakens slowly, has the power to still surprise his audience who don’t know about Percy Schmeiser ‘s story. Moreover, the cinematography which takes “wide angel”, gives its own impression for films that air on television screens that are rarely found in other films.
