Monsoon

1h 25m Drama, History, Romance 2019

A personal journey with universal resonance, Monsoon is a rich and poignant look at the struggle for identity in a place where the past weighs heavily on the present.

Kit (Henry Golding) returns to Ho Chi Minh City/Saigon for the first time since leaving at the age of six when his family to England in the aftermath of the Vietnam War. As he starts to piece together hazy memories from his fractured childhood, he meets African AmericanLewis whose father fought in the war…

Monsoon is a visually rich and poignant tour de force with an outstanding performance from Henry Golding. Hong Khaou, the Cambodian-Chinese writer-director of the much acclaimed Lilting, lived in Vietnam until the age of eight, after his family fled the Khmer Rouge. His latest film is both an intimate meditation on cultural dislocation and a love story about the need to belong.
