In the face of a modern urban life devoid of anything but an uninterrupted parade of dehumanising compromise and disappointment, Stanley tenuously guards his fragile individuality in between gulps of booze. The only solace he enjoys is commiseration with his self-consciously sophisticated neighbour John, and his unspoken adoration of a warmly sympathetic co-worker Daisy. But as a surreal comic apocalypse begins to transform everyone into a rhinoceros, the non-conformism that seemed like Stanley's downfall may be his only salvation. Reunited for the only time after their triumph in Mel Brooks' The Producers, Gene Wilder and Zero Mostel catapult their shared genius for elegant slapstick, manic wit, and sly satire to a level of fearless absurdity that virtually no other comedy team would dare approach.
