Critic Reviews for Monsoon
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.
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.
The general consensus surrounding Monsoon appears to be it is a little too subtle for its own good. It's hard to disagree and there's a feeling Khaou is treading too lightly.
A slow burner, but it lingers in the memory long after.
[Hong] Khaou is a filmmaker who is expert at making it look like nothing at all is happening on-screen, but under the surface the world is churning. That he so elegantly pulls us into this story is a real skill...
