Eight child soldiers on a remote mountain in Latin America watch over a hostage and a conscripted milk cow. In this Lord of the Flies-esque story, the children degenerate into cult-like rituals, running amok, with the strong preying on the weak. Disaster strikes when the hostage attempts to escape.

What are critics saying?


CineVue by

Nothing short of an aesthete’s dream, a film crammed with visual bravado that at various times echoes Kubrick, Malick, and Coppola’s Apocalypse Now.


IndieWire by Eric Kohn

Aided by “Under the Skin” composer Micah Levi’s thunderous score, Landes delivers a suspenseful encapsulation of alienated youth enmeshed in pointless battles that can only lead to further destruction.


The Playlist by Joe Blessing

Though Monos feels very contemporary aesthetically, its subjects are timeless: the malleability of group dynamics and how subtle changes can lead to either violence or harmony. It’s a philosophical film with very few words, examining its ideas through powerful images and feelings.


The Film Stage by Jordan Raup

The viscerality will surely leave one shaken, though they may question if the unceasing sadistic acts on display are worth the experience.


Time Out by Joshua Rothkopf

Kids train for guerrilla fighting in a gorgeously atmospheric film that feels like a transmission from the future.


Screen Daily by Tim Grierson

This is a gripping, sometimes hypnotising film in which notions of good and evil are less clear-cut than the urgent desire to stay alive.


The Telegraph by Tim Robey

There’s a bicep-flexing quality to Landes’s direction, with its bursts of colour and chaos, its conjuration of a surreal experience out of tactile reality. You tumble out of it bruised, bewildered, mesmerised.
