Schizophrenia:past and present.
11 December 2001 | by (Gijón, Asturies, Spain) – See all my reviews

Monos como Becky (Monkeys like Becky) is a documentary in two mixed parts. One of the parts is about the portuguese neurophysiologist Antonio Egas Moniz, Nobel prize for Medicine in 1949, who was one of the first (or even the first) scientist who operated on schizophrenic patients using the technic called lobotomy.

The other part is about the day by day life of schizophrenic people nowadays: their behaviours, their relationships, their treatments for the illness. The title of the movie is a reference to a chimpanzee used to experiment for a better knowledge of the schizophrenia. In the present the lobotomy is not used, dued to its lack of operative results in most of the cases and the appearence of very effective new drugs (in the 70's) to control the symptoms and disturb behaviours caused by the mental illness.
