Description MONOS, Alejandro Landes' awe-inspiring third feature, is a breathtaking survivalist saga set on a remote mountain in Latin America. The film tracks a young group of soldiers and rebels -- bearing names like Rambo, Smurf, Bigfoot, Wolf and Boom-Boom -- who keep watch over an American hostage, Doctora (Julianne Nicholson). The teenage commandos perform military training exercises by day and indulge in youthful hedonism by night, an unconventional family bound together under a shadowy force know only as The Organization. After an ambush drives the squadron into the jungle, both the mission and the intricate bonds between the group begin to disintegrate. Order descends into chaos and within MONOS the strong begin to prey on the weak in this vivid, cautionary fever-dream. With a rapturous score by Mica Levi (only her third, after UNDER THE SKIN and JACKIE), director Alejandro Landes examines the chaos and absurdity of war from the unique perspective of adolescence, recalling LORD OF THE FLIES and BEAU TRAVAIL in a way that feels wholly original. Landes brings together a diverse young cast of both seasoned professionals (including Hannah Montana's Moisés Arias) and untrained neophytes and thrusts them into an unforgiving, irrational and often surreal environment where anything can happen - even peace.

The unique perspective of a woman is quite an interesting and novel aspect to a movie, and that's the case here. Maria Shriver plays the lead role of "Evelyn", a prisoner who has a rather sad past and has lost her love. The film begins with a series of flashbacks of her and her mother as children, before the events of the film take place. The flashbacks are well crafted and give the viewer a sense of Evelyn's past, without giving away the main plot points. The flashback scenes are very well done and give the viewer a sense of "who" Evelyn is and why she is where she is. When the story begins, we are introduced to the men who are in charge of the prison. The women are actually men, but they are assigned to work in the kitchen and are forced to cook in the prison. Their contribution to the prison's food production is not very good, so the men are given the task of being the cooks. Eventually, they become the cooks themselves and become a group of ruthless, sadistic men. In addition to the men, there are also female prisoners who are "used" as sex slaves and are used as bargaining chips to get the men out of prison. As the men go to prison, the women also begin to question their relationship with the men and begin to question their position in the prison. The film is told from the point of view of Evelyn's sister, a former prisoner who became a friend to Evelyn after she was released. She has come to prison to try to find her sister, and she becomes the primary source of information to Evelyn about the prison. The film is extremely well made and the photography is beautiful. The women in the film are portrayed as intelligent, well-educated women who have been treated poorly by the men in their lives, and it is interesting to see how Evelyn has come to terms with her situation. It is also interesting to see how the women who were in charge of the prison became more violent in the prison. The men's actions and treatment of the women are not well-written, but it is clear that these men do not want to hear the women's ideas, and it is the men who cause the problems. The film is very well done, and I found it to be a very interesting film. It is good to see a film that focuses on women in prison. I give the film an 8 out of 10.
