Human Nature - Movie Synopsis & Plot
A four-way romance with a hairy woman, a scientist who is teaching mice table manners, his assistant, and a man raised by apes.
Charlie Kaufman is notorious for his strange screenplays. "Being John Malkovich" was wildly original and off the wall, and when asked to adapt the book "The Orchid Thief" in his latest movie "Adaptation," he decided to write himself into the screenplay, as well as a fictitious identical twin brother. That being said, "Human Nature," his other, lesser-known film of 2002, is no less strange, featuring a furry woman (the otherwise beautiful Patricia Arquette), an odd scientist that is trying to teach mice table manners (Tim Robbins), a feral man who thinks he is an ape (Rhys Ifans), and a French assistant that isn't really French. The movie is about love - no, it's about sex - hence, human nature. Read our Human Nature movie review »
