A film about monkey pain
High Fidelity review
18th March 2012
Years ago, a Head Teacher friend of mine told me about male monkeys. Apparently, long after the young females of the kind have started collecting fruit and making nests, the young males are still up in the tree tops, throwing sticks at each other and shrieking.
This film is about the male monkeys. It is a truth universally held that males grow up in a slow and monkey way. This = an uncomfortable way to grow up .. but maybe we do it to make up for a lack of periods or other forms of female pain.
This movie catches the male pain, the growth and the universal truth. Bravo.
