Film Description

An early comedy from Allen about a New Yorker who leaves his mundane job to pursue dreams of glory in Latin America, Bananas is in much the same vein as Sleeper and Love and Death; it also includes an appearance by Sylvester Stallone as a subway hoodlum.

Puny New Yorker and gadget tester Fielding Mellish (Woody Allen) is in love with Nancy, a beautiful political activist who is herself obsessed by the battles being waged in San Marcos between the dictator General Vargas and his revolutionary opponents. Thus, in an attempt to impress his beloved, Mellish makes for San Marcos and in a bizarre and bewildering series of events, ends up the president of the country.
