On a remote mountaintop, a rebel group of commandos perform military training exercises while watching over a prisoner (Julianne Nicholson) for a shadowy force known only as 'The Organization'. After a series of unexpected events drives them deep into the jungle, fracturing their intricate bond, their mission slowly begins to collapse. Set against a stunningly beautiful but dangerous landscape, Described by Guillermo del Toro as "mesmerizing" and named director Landes as "a powerful new voice in cinema", this awe-inspiring film is a breathtakingly epic vision that will leave you both mesmerised and utterly gripped.
Monos, in its surreal power and persuasiveness, deserves to be called a sci-fi epic of the here and the now.
Nigel Andrews Financial Times
An experience at once jagged and lyrical, brutal and beautiful, angry and abstract, scattered and wholly singular.
