"Monos", Alejandro Landes’ awe-inspiring third feature, is a breathtaking survivalist saga set on a remote mountain in Latin America. The film tracks a young group of soldiers and rebels - bearing names like Rambo, Smurf, Bigfoot, Wolf and Boom-Boom - who keep watch over an American hostage, Doctora (Julianne Nicholson). With a rapturous score by Mica Levi (only her third, after 'Under the Skin' and 'Jackie'), director Alejandro Landes examines the chaos and absurdity of war from the unique perspective of adolescence, recalling 'Lord of the Flies' and 'Beau Travail' in a way that feels wholly original.
Landes brings together a diverse young cast of both seasoned professionals (including Hannah Montana's Moisés Arias) and untrained neophytes and thrusts them into an unforgiving, irrational and often surreal environment where anything can happen - even peace.
