The actor of a film being made lives without distinction his own personal reality and his character's fiction. As the involuntary object of chance and circumstance, he looks for a meaning and way out, while being pursued by outlaws, a magician, a romantic fantasy, a drunk and his own self-image. The humour, the reason of the persecution, situations, personages, set decoration, dialogs and soundtrack (which uses themes from other films) lead us to symbols, metaphors and the refusal of a possible logical narrative, in a way to allow the viewer to experiment a sensation analogous to the one of the main character, inducing in him the need of thinking a meaning while lost and led by the sustained expectation, and by the intentionally recurrent anti-climax.
Bang Bang is a surreal slapstick comedy which has episodes rather than a story as such. Its extremely enigmatic symbolic content, rich with ethnically Brazilian materials, marks it as being influenced by the "Cinema Novo" filmmaking movement which appeared in Brazil in the '60s. Unlike films from the Cinema Novo period, this Portuguese-language film has no particular political content and is designed with entertainment in mind. Cinema Novo was an attempt to begin a genuinely Brazilian form of filmmaking, and it combined ethnic symbolism with local politics; while films inspired by the movement infuriated censors, they did not catch the imagination of the Brazilian public. In this film, a man tries to shave while wearing a monkey mask, and makes love while wearing it. As the episodes progress, the monkey-masked man begins to be dogged by a strange group of men whom he disowns, including a firearm-shooting blind man, a transvestite and a native chieftain. Their slapstick interactions are marked by a high degree of improvisation.
