Director: Marco Ferreri
Countries of production : Italy - France
Cast: Gerard Depardieu, Marcello Mastroianni, Geraldine Fitzgerald, James Coco
Color - English

One of Ferreri’s strangest and sharpest depictions of the decline of contemporary society … A group of misfits in a broken-down area of Manhattan struggle in a decaying world where men are consumed by power and rats may overtake the human population. Depardieu’s character prefers the company of a chimpanzee he finds near the carcass of a giant ape, presumably left over from the remake of King Kong. Filmed in English in New York City.
