Aro Recommended Monsoon


UK 2019,
Dir. Hong Khaou
In English, Vietnamese with English subtitles
Genres: Drama / LGBT


“Beautifully shot and subtly delivered, Monsoon offers a poignant picture of the emigrant experience as well as Vietnam’s post-war hangover, while cementing Henry Golding’s position as a leading man to watch.”~Empire

Aroview: A sensitive and detailed portrait of the emigrant experience, following a Vietnamese man who returns to Saigon after three decades living in England.

Once there he struggles with the native language, having left at the age of 6 following the Vietnam War, but sets out on a journey around the country to find a place to spread his parents' ashes, meeting long lost acquaintances in the process. A tender, beautifully shot evocation of a country in a state of flux, with director Hong Khaou achieving a poetic depth unsurprising to anyone who has seen his previous drama LILTING.
