Reviews

Samarkand from the United States had this to say on IMDB after watching this movie:

An exceptional movie. Independent film-making at its finest. I just watched Monsoon Wife at a film festival – a very eye-opening drama on the horrors of poverty-based child prostitution in Asia. It’s a bold and original movie with talented directing and actors.

Weaving throughout the movie is a story of lost love and new love, one that overrides cultural barriers. I was left with an odd mix of emotions. On the one hand, joy from witnessing love manifest in a very special type of fulfillment, and on the other, a question arises from within, ‘What can we do?’ about the devastating effects of child prostitution.

It takes real intestinal fortitude to not only be willing to look in places that are extremely hard to delve into, but to also present close friends as being perpetrators. I especially commend the director’s and the writer’s ability to present the impact of this tragedy not only on the lives of the children, but the devastating emptiness that engulfs the perpetrators as well. You have my highest regard for your noble venture. I recommend this movie to all.
