Storyline

MONK is a warm, tragicomic and self-assertive film about an unusual family and strong family ties. Monk is a thirteen-year old hypochondriac, his sister, Joni, a rebellious adolescent, his mother, Maria, a flamboyant Spaniard and his father, Fabian, an artist at odds with himself. When the family suddenly has to depart for Spain to say goodbye to Maria's brother, who is terminally ill, this strains the family relations. Written by Marleen Slot

Lovely little art film
28 December 2018 | by paulvmyersSee all my reviews

Tragi comic offbeat movie about love, lost love and redemption. Such a pleasure to see a film that doesn't flag. Holds the attention from start to finish.
