Critic Reviews for Monsoon

  • A thoughtful, deeply felt movie of great sweetness, unfolding at an unhurried pace.

    September 24, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Most film-makers would crank the themes loud. But Khaou is never less than measured in his study of place and displacement, careful as a gymnast on a beam.

    September 23, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • In under 90 minutes, this fleeting character study leaves a lasting, optimistic impression of love and friendship.

    September 22, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Not everything in Monsoon is quite as successful as those moments on the train. But overall, this is a fascinating and thoughtful follow-up to Khaou's well-received debut feature, the 2014 Sundance premiere Lilting with Ben Whishaw and Cheng Pei-pei.

    July 9, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A graceful and truthfully irresolute investigation into the strange, often poignantly unreciprocated relationship that many first- and second-generation emigrants have with the far-off foreign country of the past.

  • Monsoon is a quiet film, with little dialogue but a great deal of quiet observation, and excellent location cinematography Benjamin Kracun.
