The Trial of Le Singe
A ridiculous true story.
In 1815 a shipwrecked monkey had the gross misfortune of washing ashore in Grim North-East England. Adding to his woes, the locals mistook him for a French spy and placed him on trial for treason.
A hectic, hysterical, historical epic packed with dramatic set pieces, low budget chaos alternating between sharpest wit and gutter humour. A wry look at nationalism and scape-goating in a punky farce about being in the wrong place at the wrong time... And being a monkey.
