HUMAN NATURE
2001, Warner Bros., 96 min, USA, Dir: Michel Gondry

Michel Gondry made his feature debut with this subversive and satirical comedy from the pen of screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (BEING JOHN MALKOVICH). Severe body-hair issues led Patricia Arquette into the wilderness, but desire led her back out - and into the arms of research psychologist Tim Robbins. Together they discover a young man (Rhys Ifans) who has been raised as an ape … and the line between man and beast only gets thinner from there.
