Winner Sundance Film festival World Cinema Dramatic Special Jury Award
Official Selection: Berlin Film Festival
Alejandro Landes’ multi-award winning feature opens on a desolate mountain. Here a gang of armed youths - with names like Wolf, Dog, Boom Boom, and Rambo - guard a milk cow and a hostage: Doctora (Julianne Nicholson, I, Tonya, Masters of Sex).
There appear to be no adults, and what orders there are arrive by radio. Earning comparisons to Lord of the Flies, Aguirre the Wrath of God, and Apocalypse Now, Monos follows the gang of youths deep into the chaos of their world of mountains and jungles.
The powerful direction and cast (which includes Moises Arias, Nacho Libre, The Stanford Prison Experiment) is underpinned by strong cinematography and a great score by Mica Levi.
