One of Marco Ferreri’s earliest and most beloved films, “The Ape Woman” is inspired by the true story of 19th-century carnival performer Julia Pastrana. Annie Girardot gives a signature performance as Marie the Ape Woman, an ex-nun whose body is completely covered in black hair. She is discovered at a convent by sleazy entrepreneur Focaccia (Ugo Tognazzi), who marries her and swiftly gets her on the freak show circuit to cash in on her distinctive appearance. A freewheeling satire both hilarious and grotesque, “The Ape Woman” is distinguished by the irreverent wit and anarchic energy of Ferreri’s greatest work. New digital restoration!
