A border inspection at Ventimiglia, between Italy and France, turns into a fantastical fairy tale narrated by a chorus of frogs. In this tale, a scientist experiments a human rejuvenation cure using monkey testicles. Doctor Voronoff actually and factually DID exist. Back in the “roaring twenties” his fame had been planetary. Songs were composed about him, and sung at the Folies Bergères of Paris and the Sambas of Rio de Janeiro’s Carnival. Mikhail Bulgakov wrote “Heart of a Dog” inspired by him. And Mussolini declared that he wanted to “Voronoff” all of Italy… His villa stands on the border where thousands of migrants had been blocked.
