She Monkeys / Apflickorna Trailer. Lisa Aschan‘s She Monkeys / Apflickorna (2011) movie stars Mathilda Paradeiser, Linda Molin, Isabella Lindquist, Sergej Merkusjev, and Adam Lundgren. She Monkeys / Apflickorna‘s plot synopsis: “When Emma meets Cassandra, they initiate a relationship filled with physical and psychological challenges. Emma does whatever it takes to master the rules of the game. Lines are crossed and the stakes get higher and higher. Despite this, Emma can’t resist the intoxicating feeling of total control.”
The fact that both of the girls are in competition with each other yet one girl seems to hate and like the other girl at the same time will make for a cool dynamic on screen.
I found the tone of the film to be far closer to Celine Schiamma’s Water Lilies than that of Moodysson’s Fukcing Amal (Show Me Love). It’s tightly wound 80 minutes is centered around the budding friendship and rivalry of two Swedish teens on an equestrian acrobatics team. It is a very cold, calculating study on sexuality and power with a dark, insidious sense of humor, a film both classical and refreshing in aesthetic.
