USA 1971, R: Woody Allen mit Louise Lasser, Carlos Montalban, Natividad Abascal, Jacobo Morales, Miguel Angel Suarez, Sylvester Stallone, 83 Min, OmU

One of Woody Allen's earlier, more slapstick-oriented efforts, Bananas tells the story of Fielding Mellish, a neurotic New Yorker who follows the object of his affections, Nancy, to the fictional Central American country of San Marcos, where she is involved in a revolution. Nancy wants nothing to do with Fielding, but he soon becomes a guest of the country's dictator, before accidentally becoming the leader of San Marcos himself. Fielding is eventually shipped back to the US and tried as a subversive, but being that this is a comedy, and an especially light one at that, everything works out in the end. A far cry from Allen's later, more somber films, Bananas still works as an often hilarious amalgam of sight gags, one-liners, and bizarre asides.
