Monogamy Reviews

Linda Barnard
Toronto Star
Top Critic IconTop Critic

The conceit is a decent idea for a thriller, if not a terribly original one, but Shapiro loses the rhythm with a plodding story and a pat ending we can see coming a mile away.

Monogamy is a tough little movie. And a good one.

There are certain filmmakers who should have their Cassavetes card revoked, and on the evidence of "Monogamy,'' Dana Adam Shapiro has joined their ranks.

Shapiro puts his own stamp on voyeur cinema.

Despite the ominous feel, this is a mystery about losing or gaining lives and unknown detours.

With modest resources, some nice digital camerawork and an appealing cast -- the likable Ms. Jones draws you in easily -- Mr. Shapiro keeps you engaged even when his story falters.

I reached the outer limits of my endurance level after 25 minutes, but you may make it to an hour.

[An] irksome dither of an indie drama...

The film's final plot twist is easy to spot well before it arrives, but that doesn't detract from its crafty, heartfelt, and surprisingly sound affirmation of getting hitched.

A painfully dull plunge into the suffocating self-absorption that seems to be killing modern romance: Ask not what your relationship can do for you, but what you can do for your relationship, kiddos!
