Overview

Lafayette Gerard Depardieu, a young-ish misfit Frenchman and Nocello Marcello Mastroianni, an older misfit Italian, live in a run-down section of New York City and are friends. Lafayette works for Flaxman James Coco, an excitable antiquarian who owns and runs something called the "Roman Museum," by means of which he upholds the standards of a former age. Lafayette also works for a women's lib group, which one day decides to "rape" him to see how the shoe fits on the other foot. Rather than being much bothered, Lafayette starts a liaison with the woman who actually had sex with him. In this rambling tale, these men are shown to have great difficulty enduring intense emotions, and the situations that arise force them to confront this difficulty repeatedly.

    Surreal Film and that cute chimp.

    A silly little black comedy set in an unknown time period (I doubt that Ferreri even knew) where rats prevail and King Kong is left to rot ashore. James Cocco owns a wax museum where he plays notables of World History; Mastroianni plays a destitute who lives on Staten Island with the pigeons; and Depardieu is the protagonist who finds a pet chimp near the previously mentioned Kong carcass. Bye Bye Monkey has a clever storyline but somehow gets to the point of boredom and inanity; but that can sometimes be a good thing. I pretty much enjoyed the lush visuals and the bizarre juxtaposition of the films characters and settings, altho what is with that ending?. . . leave it up for the interpretations, huh. Nevertheless, Bye Bye Monkey is an unusual movie and can be a fun watch if one doesn't get too involved with its metaphysical allusions.
