  • It's an inspired blend of science and narrative, and an affecting allegory emerges from the unique imagery.

  • What saves this movie from itself is the entrancing cinematography (Alejandro Mejía), splendid production design (Sofia Guzman), colorful art direction (Maria Camila Botero and Lia Nessim Macia) and a transcendental musical score (Cristóbal Maryán).

  • I was left nodding, not knocked out.

  • Rather like the butterfly wings that are its central metaphor, Son of Monarchs is deceptively fragile-seeming, yet robust, structurally complex and vibrantly hued.

  • The film, by the French-Venezuelan Gambis, also a biologist, holds one's interest. The images of New York and Mexico, along with the beautiful monarch butterflies, are striking.

  • If you are looking for a story with cinematography that highlights the beauty of nature, uses sound to entrance the audience, all while telling the stories of characters that feel real and complex, check out this film if given the chance.
