A nagging mother, constipated father, good old Jewish neuroticism and insatiable libido make the life of 33-year-old Alexander Portnoy a living hell. Would a chance encounter with a dreamy shiksa called The Monkey bring him salvation or lead him to total destruction? Based on Philip Roth’s controversial novel, Portnoy’s Complaint is an irreverent look at modern Jewish life in the USA.

Warning: Film contains scenes of a sexual nature and strong language.
