      Monsoon sees writer-director Hong Khaou offering a thoughtful look at the emigrant experience, brought beautifully to life by Henry Golding's stellar performance.

      Mary Sollosi Entertainment Weekly Monsoon could stand to be a little more turbulent, but that doesn't mean it won't stir something within you. Rated: B+ Nov 21, 2020 Full Review Sandra Hall Sydney Morning Herald It's all very delicately done, which may be the problem. Khaou is so intent on not being obvious about anything he wants to say that the dilemmas and dissatisfactions of the immigrant experience get lost among the subtleties. Rated: 3/5 Nov 19, 2020 Full Review Angie Han FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) A graceful and poignant take on the immigrant experience. Nov 14, 2020 Full Review Jane Freebury The Canberra Times (Australia) Monsoon explores displacement and cultural homelessness, a growing problem in the world today. Rated: 3/5 Aug 22, 2022 Full Review Victoria Luxford Dirty Movies This movie is in no hurry to explore the remnants of a lifetime, but Goldings travels will speak to many who have questioned the idea of home. Rated: 4/5 Feb 17, 2022 Full Review Ben Turner The Pink Lens Though it captures that restless statelessness that any traveller will recognise, it fails to create a plot strong enough to justify its existence. It's absolutely a character piece, but you'll find yourself wishing Kit was a little more interesting. Rated: 3/5 Aug 31, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      PridePosterStudios Sounds good on paper but achieves very little, sadly Rated 2 out of 5 stars 04/24/24 Full Review Maria O A complete boredom... It promises a lot and then delivers very very little, unfortunaly. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Slow paced journey about a man, his past and his heritage. Film help up by a good performance by Henry Golding and amazing cinematography. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Nothing happens in this nothing of a movie. As it unfolded I was no longer a viewer, but rather a director and editor trying to save this fool thing from incoherence until I snapped to and realized that forcing myself beyond 30 minutes' tolerance would have been an act of masochism. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Kit goes home to Vietnam after being gone forever - but the movie doesn't engage him and his cultural roots as much as it does a relationship that is tepid at best. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a movie about nothing, nothing happens, the main character's arch is undeveloped and uninteresting, the photography seems very nice, but the camera work is lazy and mediocre. Honestly, don't waste your time watching this movie. Henry Golding is very good delivering an stoic (and undeveloped) lead, but that's about it, all other performances fall short.
