The Ape Woman

La donna scimmia

directed by Marco Ferreri
Italy, 1964


The Ape Woman is based on the real-life exploitation of a deformed human being. Ugo Tognazzi stars as a charming ne’er-do-well who happens upon young Annie Girardot, who outside of the fact that she is covered with hair from head to foot is a normal woman with normal desires and dreams.
