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.
