Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.16.19] Argentina drama

It opens like a dreamy "kids surviving in the wild" movie but pretty quickly, Alejandro Landes' Monos takes a turn into unexpected territory.

Winner of a World Cinema Special Jury Prize at Sundance, it's immediately clear to see why Landes' film captured the eye of the jury and critics alike. In the less than two-minute-long trailer, the story moves from awe-inspiring wonder to terror, all married with gorgeous cinematography from Jasper Wolf and what I can only assume are bits of Mica Levi's score.

The film is set on a remote mountain in Latin America and follows a young group of soldiers and rebels who are keeping watch over an American hostage until an ambush brings chaos to their orderly lives and drives them deep into the forest.

The wordless trailer is completely mesmerizing and if it's any indication for what we can expect from the movie, Monos is not to be missed.

Monos opens September 13.
