  • "Dans les années 20-30 aux USA, l'étonnante aventure de Léonard Zelig surnommé : "L'homme-caméléon", qui présentait la faculté de prendre l'aspect de ses proches... Noir avec les noirs, obèse avec les obèses, nazi auprès d'Hitler !... Woody Allen réalise une véritable prouesse technique, aidé par des effets spéciaux saisissants, il intègre son héros fictif dans d'authentiques images d'archives et en profite pour dresser un panorama hilarant des années 20."

Surnomme l'homme-cameleon, Zelig est examine par divers savant dont un psychiatre, Eudora Fletcher.

  • "Falso documental alrededor de Leonard Zelig, el hombre camaleón que asombró a la sociedad norteamericana de la 'era del jazz'. Su historia arranca el día que miente al afirmar que ha leído Moby Dick, sólo para no sentirse excluido. A partir de entonces, su necesidad de ser aceptado le hace transformarse físicamente en las personas que tiene a su alrededor, lo que inmediatamente le convierte en un fenómeno mediático."
  • "Storia di Leonard Zelig (in yiddish: benedetto), un omarino ebreo americano e camaleonte umano, tra le due guerre, che nella sua smodata smania di essere accettato e amato ha sviluppato la capacità camaleontica di assumere le caratteristiche somatiche, psichiche e lessicali di chiunque incontri. (Mymovies)."
  • "Leonard Zelig ist ein gesellschaftlicher Verwandlungskünstler. Seine neurotische Unsicherheit zwingt ihn zur geistigen und sogar körperlichen Anpassung an jede Umgebung - egal mit wem er gerade zusammen ist. Dank der Behandlung durch Dr. Eudora Fletcher wird Zelig allmählich geheilt und wandelt sich vom Zirkus-Freak zur nationalen Berühmtheit - und zu Eudoras Verlobtem. Doch als die Missetaten aus Zeligs Vergangenheit als multiple Persönlichkeit ans Licht kommen (Diebstahl Bigamie und eine illegale Blinddarmoperation), ergreift das menschliche Chamäleon die Flucht. Eudora sucht weltweit nach dem einzigen Mann, der alle Männer in sich vereint, die sie jemals haben wollte! (Quelle: Umschlagtext)."
  • "This spoof of documentary films stars Woody Allen as Leonard Zelig, the famous "Chameleon Man" of the 1920's, whose personality was so vague he would assume the characteristics of whomever he came into contact with. Filmed in black-and-white, the movie simulates the look of a newsreel, complete with stentorian narration."@en

  • "Highly original comedy from Woody Allen, made in 1983 who plays a mysterious figure from the past, (raced by c̀ontemporary' newsreel), whose longing for friendship gives him the power to turn himself into likenesses of those with whom he comes into contact. Mia Farrow is Dr. Eudora Fletcher, a psychiatrist."
  • "Fiction. Comédie traitée comme un documentaire biographique sur la vie d'un certain Leonard Zelig qui, dans le New York de 1920, se transforme physiquement et mentalement. Une étonnante faculté de mimétisme lui permet de se transformer en Noir, Indien, obèse, milliardaire, chanteur d'opéra, asiatique, etc., constituant une fable sur le conformisme et la réalité. Avec Woody Allen, Mia Farrow."
  • "Mock-documentary about a human chameleon who is so anxious to fit in that he actually takes on the appearance and personality of whatever celebrity he is with."@en
  • "Principal performers: Woody Allen, Mia Farrow. Summary: A man who changes his personality to blend with his bizarre surroundings."
  • "Leonard Zelig (Allen) is a social quick-change artist whose neurotic insecurity forces him to mimic--mentally and physically--whomever he's with. Treated by Dr. Eudora Fletcher (Farrow), Zelig is slowly cured, and in the process goes from side-show freak to national celebrity--to Eudora's fiancé! But when misdeeds from Zelig's multiple-personality past start to surface (larceny, bigamy and an unauthorized appendectomy), the human chameleon is on the run again, and Eudora must search the world over to find--and save--the only man who's every man she's ever wanted!"
  • "Tratada como un falso documental sobre la vida de Leonard Zelig, un tipo al que se conoció por el camaleón humano, por su enorme capacidad de adoptar el aspecto físico de toda persona con quien contacta."

Tout simplement le personnage le plus illustre de ce siècle, parce qu'une étonnante faculté de mimétisme lui permet de se transformer en n'importe quel être humain en le côtoyant.

  • "A human chameleon has the ultimate ability to meld into his surroundings and resemble the people and society around him."@en
  • ""Who was the man called the Human Chameleon? He rides in a ticker-tape motorcade down Manhattan's canyon of heroes. He stands between U.S. presidents Herbert Hoover and Calvin Coolidge. He clowns with boxer Jack Dempsey and he talks theater with playwright Eugene O'Neill. When Hitler rallies his supporters at Nuremberg, he's right there on the speaker's platform. His name is Leonard Zelig. But who in the world is Leonard Zelig? ... He's the ultimate camp follower, a celebrity nonentity who fits in everywhere, because he actually changes his personality to blend with his bizarre surroundings. Conceived as a mock-documentary, Zelig is the 'true' story of Leonard Zelig's amazing case history. How did Zelig develop his unique talent? What does he hope to gain from his uncanny mimicry? And finally, is there a real Leonard Zelig beneath his multiple exteriors? Searching for answers, and saving Zelig from the clutches of a thoroughly baffled medical establishment, is Dr. Eudora Fletcher. ... She believes that Zelig can be cured. After all, Zelig is only trying to fit in. He just takes his effort to extremes"--Videodisc sleeve."@en
