Monos set for release on DVD and Blu-ray in February
Picturehouse Entertainment has announced the 17th February DVD and Blu-ray release of Monos. When we reviewed the film at LFF last September, we called it "an intoxicating thrill ride which manages to bridge the gap between arthouse and midnight movie mayhem, feeling otherworldly even as it becomes obvious which direction the story is heading in."
On a remote mountaintop, a rebel group of commandos perform military training exercises while watching over a prisoner (Julianne Nicholson) for a shadowy force known only as ‘The Organization’. After a series of unexpected events drives them deep into the jungle, fracturing their intricate bond, their mission slowly begins to collapse. Set against a stunningly beautiful but dangerous landscape, Alejandro Landes’s awe-inspiring film is a breathtakingly epic vision that will leave you both mesmerised and utterly gripped.
Having been in competition in Sundance (where it won the World Cinema Dramatic Special Jury Award) and Berlin 2019 (nominated for Best Feature Film), it was also entered in competition for this year’s BIFA awards (nominated for Best International Independent Film), as well as receiving two nominations for the London Critics’ Circle Film Awards (nominated for Foreign-Language Film of the Year and Technical Achievement Award). As well as stunning performances from the young cast, the film has an amazing score by Mica Levi (Jackie and Under The Skin), praised by audiences and critics alike.
