B. Monkey

"My name is B.
B. Monkey.
They call me that because I can get into anything."

Italian Cinema Week at the Flea™ continues with the story of a dream girl come to rescue a teacher from his dreary existence and lead him into a profitable life of crime and adventure. Something like that. Unfortunately, this film's teacher is too much of a wet blanket for suspension of disbelief to quite kick in. Fortunately, B herself more than makes up for it. The only problem with watching a good romantic comedy is the feeling of having your heart yanked out and stomped on. Ha ha! Thanks, Fate! Horror movies are much easier to watch, obviously.

Asia Argento stars as would be a would be reformed B. Monkey and features a new tattoo. Rupert Everett reprises his role as sympathetic gay friend to hot women. This one will make you homesick for London if you are not missing it already. And a good choice for subtitle haters as it is an English-language performance.
