Little Reward, Flat Experience
19 September 2013 | by atlasmbSee all my reviews

I found She Monkeys to be a somewhat confusing film, meaning that the intent of the director was not readily apparent to me.

The tone of this film was more melancholic than playful. And foreboding. That is primarily because the main character, Emma, is a girl who purposefully hides her emotions. Because she is so stone-faced, it is difficult to know what she is thinking or to anticipate what she might do next.

This does add some suspense to the story. And it did keep me involved, wondering where the story was going next.

In the end, I did not find many truths or questions to reward my involvement. Technically, the film was well made. But emotionally, it left me wanting.
