Monica - External Reviews

wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
quick review:

A two-hour long exposition, the climax of which you know in the first frame - given that, it wasn't all bad. You can see the sincere effort in trying to keep us interested in the events. Unfortunately, the effort is not successful because of this irrepressible urge to be stylish and muck around with the timeline in the narrative.
