With her mysterious, gripping debut, Swedish director Lisa Aschan deliciously subverts the coming-of-age formula.

Lisa Aschan's remarkable debut shows girls aping adult sexuality and power-plays. Female adolescence becomes a gasping for air and grasping for achievement, getting ahead of a rival or friend (the distinction blurs) however one can.

A distant attempt at something more personal.

April 25, 2013 Full Review Source: HeyUGuys

A courageous, periodically unsettling coming-of-age tale, She Monkeys is the arresting first feature from director Lisa Aschan.

An intriguing and unsettling exploration of female friendship, rivalry and burgeoning sexuality.

Examines with subtlety and wit the dangerously mischievous, highly competitive friendship between two good-looking teenage girls at an equestrian school in Gothenburg.

This quietly tense drama piercingly probes the travails of young girls on the cusp of womanhood, with all of the hormone-fuelled jealousy, duplicity and confusion that this entails.

[A] bitter, stalkerish view of the inner lives of girls that pushes boundaries to get nowhere.

Built on the shifting sands of childhood and adolescence, She Monkeys has an undercurrent of unease in which the characters are struggling to become 'adult', whatever that may mean.

Eye for Film

It suffers a little from its resolute avoidance of titillation - a little more passion would not have gone amiss - but it's a worthwhile effort nonetheless.

May 17, 2012 Full Review Source: Guardian

Aschan gives her film a glacial surface while suggesting a maelstrom of suppressed rage and sexual urges just beneath.

Capturing the awkwardness and out-and-out terror of becoming a woman, She Monkeys is a gripping, genre-blending triumph elevated by commanding performances from its young cast.

May 17, 2012 Full Review Source: Film4

A deftly measured, deeply unsettling portrait of a power struggle.

Little White Lies

A disjointed but refreshingly subversive character drama.

[It] may sound like a pocket-fiddler's dream, but proves rather sweeter than its synopsis.

Captivating and powerfully emotional, this is a strikingly assured debut from director Lisa Aschan with a pair of terrific performances from newcomers Mathilda Paradeiser and Linda Molin and a scene-stealing turn from young Isabella Lindquist.
