She Monkeys
Filmfest 2011

SHE MONKEYS is a modern Western about control, sex and creatures. When Emma meets Cassandra, they initiate a relationship filled with physical and psychological challenges. Emma does whatever it takes to master the rules of the game. Lines are crossed and the stakes get higher and higher. Despite this, Emma can’t resist the intoxicating feeling of total control. "Delivering one of the most intense and complex feature debuts to come from Sweden since Lukas Moodyson’s SHOW ME LOVE, helmer Lisa Aschan thrillingly subverts the coming-of-age genre, political correctness, gender roles and (without ever becoming graphic) just about everything to do with the depiction of developing sexuality in the taboo-breaking She Monkeys."
