Gorilla Bathes at Noon

Gorila se kupa u podne

Berlin, after the Wall has come down. A Red Army officer is left stranded, as his entire unit deserts. Having nowhere to go and nothing specific to do, he hopelessly roams around the city, like a ghostly shadow, scrounging food and making interesting acquaintances: a dealer selling literally everything, including newborn babies, a suspiciously friendly Berlin policeman, an attractive German girl and her violent Turkish boyfriend, a refugee girl with whom he develops a tender relationship. A sense of absurdity overflows the film, as Makavejev, once again, crafts a splendid juxtaposition of over-the-top scenes, which creates a sense of bitter irony.
