B. Monkey

92' - 1998 - Crime, Drama, Romance - Dialogue: Italian, French, English
Director: Michael Radford Composer: Luis Bacalov, Jennie Muskett With: Asia Argento, Jared Harris, Rupert Everett
The quiet bookworm and jazz-lover. Alan is a teacher and a very ordinary sort of guy. He falls in love with the mysterious Italian beauty, Beatrice. They do not seem well suited at first sight: he leads a protected and regular life, she is fast and criminal. But opposites attract, and when romance blossoms, Beatrice does everything to escape from the seedy side of life. Debts however force her to break in just one more time… A stylish British thriller annex tragi-romance.
