Ming of Harlem: Twenty One Storeys in the Air
Ming of Harlem: Twenty One Storeys in the Air is an only-in-New-York account of Ming, Al, and Antoine Yates, who cohabited in a high-rise social housing apartment at Drew-Hamilton complex in Harlem for several years until 2003, when news of their dwelling caused a public outcry and collective outpouring of disbelief. On the discovery that Ming was a 500-pound pound Tiger and Al a seven-foot alligator, their story took on an astonishing dimension. The film frames Yates’s recollections with a poetic study of Ming and Al, the predators’ presence combined with a text by philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy, reimagining the circumstances of the wild inside, animal names, strange territories, and human-animal relations.
The film is a documentary exploring secret lives, behavior and extreme levels of human-beast intimacy and communication. It focuses on the 'only in New York' story of Antoine Yates and his cohabitation in a Harlem high-rise. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

(es) wrote: This is fascinating if you are happy to watch the subtleties of human behavior. In a largely static narrative the attention is successfully maintained by flashbacks to a somewhat weird and repressed youth in the lives of Anthony and his undergraduate girlfriend Veronica. In the elderly phase of their lives they are portrayed by Broadbent and Rampling, as pretty annoying people, edgy, awkward and rather, well like they are anyway. Charlotte Rampling, watchful, uncommunicative, and inscrutable behind a chillingly cold stare, while Jim Broadbent plays his usually irascible self, alternating between grumpy old man and making somewhat gauche remarks and revealing to his ex wife things that were better left dead and buried in his youthful past. Their past is the centerpiece of the plot where the young Anthony is even more gauche and awkward in the relationship with his university girlfriend and this develops into a rather dark story of infidelity and tragedy which was destined to remain a secret until Anthony received a letter about a diary that had been left to him in a will.Despite some irritating personality traits in the main characters, the saving grace is the denouement of the story in which the rather unexpected twists supply a redeeming and thought provoking finale to this intriguing human drama and packs some moralistic and philosophical notions about the way we live our lives.
