Constance: My mom told me that my dad was doing an assignment in like, um, Rwanda - I don't know, some place like that - and he accidentally stood on a landmine. She said the first he he thought was, I can't photograph this, it's under my foot. So he took out a pencil and paper and made notes about it and all.

A fine little indie about issues, issues, and more issues
31 March 2002 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"The Young Girl and the Monsoon" tells of a divorced NYC man (Kinney) in a sort of middle-age crisis mode trying to manage the women in his life (lover, daughter, associate/friend) and eventually having to come to grips with them all. An all talk and no action light drama with a sense of humor, this little ensemble indie delivers a thin story about issues with solid performances by all though Muth upstages her co-stars with a sterling performance as a typically brittle teen. Perhaps the best part of the film is just watching some oft unseen actors ply their craft in fine style...too often a rarity, especially in indies. Recommended for mature adults who can identify with the issues.
