From “not much rain expected this year” to a record downpour that washes away his protagonists’ home in Kerala, prolific Canadian documaker, Sturla Gunnarsson demonstrates the power of weather to surprise even the meteorologists and change lives. Monsoon is a film that was waiting to be made: a great subject, a vast scale (all over India), dramatic cinematography, and even a bit of humour regarding the timid weather bureaucracy and a henna-haired odds-maker who bets on the rain. Gunnarsson’s style is formal and classic, with no frills beyond the inclusion of his own off-screen voice drawling questions. This is a fascinating weather film somewhere between a disaster movie and a humble salute to the soul of India. (Hollywood Reporter)
