Monos - SIFF 2019 Capsule Review

The Movie: Monos

The Director: Alejandro Landes

The Cast: Julianne Nicholson, Moises Arias, Sofia Buenaventura, Deiby Rueda, Karen Quintero

The Story: On a faraway mountaintop, eight kids with guns watch over a hostage and a conscripted milk cow.

The Review:
Director and co-writer Alejandro Landes takes a group of teenage guerrilla soldiers and shoves them through an intensely brutal trip through the jungles of South America. The dark nature of the story is offset and balanced out by the stunningly beautiful cinematography which combined makes for an at times difficult yet ultimately rewarding experience.

Monos is an official selection of the 2019 Seattle International Film Festival.
