We gave it a D

Lusty jewel thief B. (Argento) hooks up with goofy teacher Alan (Harris) and — for reasons unfathomable even on second viewing — they form a torrid union based on mutual understanding and lots of sex. The bulk of this stylish, confused drama deals with their odd relationship problems: him — schoolkids acting up; her — forced into violent heists to raise money for benefactor Paul (Rupert Everett). But this clunky Monkey is such a mess, it literally feels like it’s missing every third scene. D
