Critic Reviews for She Monkeys (Apflickorna)

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (1)

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

Time Out
Top Critic

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.
