Bye Bye Monkey

Directed by Marco Ferreri and starring Gerard Depardieu, Marcello Mastroianni, and Geraldine Fitzgerald, this brilliant black comedy was nominated for the Palme d'Or at Cannes and received the Grand Jury Prize. Depardieu plays Gerard Lafayette, a young lighting technician working for a radical theatre company in New York City. When molested by a group of feminist actors looking for inspiration for their upcoming play, Lafayette begins a relationship with one of the women before finding, and fathering, King Kong's orphaned child in the shadow of the World Trade Centre. In the wake of his masterpiece, 'La Grande Bouffe', Ferreri's first English-language feature is a quirky, challenging and unusual film about men, women and the fate of human civilisation.
