Bananas is one of Woody Allen's earliest films and the title says it all, it's crazy!

It tells the story of Fielding Mellish, a product tester from New York who deeply fall in love with an activist called Nancy who is trying to restore democracy in a Latin American country called San Marcos. After she leaves him because she wasn't happy in their relationship, Fielding decides to go to San Marcos and there he gets involved with the military rebel forces. This story has hilarious moments and there's a lot of satire and political jokes.

Woody Allen's physical comedy was great and those were my favorite moments in the film, when he was just doing crazy stuff making me laugh without saying a word!
