In this irreverent screwball comedy, Dušan Makavejev revisits the idiosyncratic style that brought him to the forefront of the international art-house community with WR: Mysteries of the Organism and Sweet Movie. Using a combination of surreal vignettes, documentary footage, and segments from the Russian WWII epic The Fall of Berlin , Gorilla Bathes at Noon explores the political and social confusion surrounding the reunification of East and West Germany. " There is an elegiac ache to Gorilla Bathes at Noon–a sort of instant Ostalgie. And like WR, the film eschews easy answers." (The Nation). In English, German and Russian with English subtitles.
