Jacqueline Xerri's MONKEY BARS surprised the hell out of me. It gloriously didn't do what I expected and more importantly made me want to see where the story went next.
The plot has three fourteen year old girls meeting some older boys and agreeing to hang out by some monkey bars.
And that's all I'll say not because there is anything bad, rather because I want to to be surprised. I want you to feel the same sense of a life lived that I experienced. I also want you to ask yourself what happens next.
I like what Jacqueline Xerri has done. Actually I liked it so much that I want to see what she does next. I want to see if she can make the sense of life remain for a full feature rather than 15 minutes. I also want her to tell me what happens next.
MONKEY BARS is currently on the festival circuit
