A bracing blend of Apocalypse Now, Lord of the Flies and Embrace of the Serpent, Monos is a psychedelic ride into the dark heart of mankind.
Exiled on a mountainside, the Monos are a teenage guerrilla group. Far away from clear orders, they must watch over a cow and a single hostage. But things go quickly awry, shaking the group apart and severing their links with the outside world.
A rich allegory that bears many interpretations, Monos pairs breathtaking, hallucinogenic visuals with intense character dynamics. With a score from Mica Levi (Under the Skin, Jackie) propelling the action, this is gripping, original filmmaking at its best.
