extrait Article DVD Times

"A Monk’s Awakening, which is a French-produced, Vietnamese-language period samurai piece, had me convinced that there was going to be some kind of humorous or ironic pay-off simply because we rarely find this level of delicacy. Needless to say I found the film to be far more effective on a second viewing…

(As an aside, A Monk’s Awakening also points up another facet of the short film, namely its ability to predict potential new trends. In this case we see a more classical style of Asian filmmaking being translated abroad; meanwhile Dupe, a cheeky little British entry akin to a low-budget Multiplicity, has eBay as one of its major plot devices, a move which will surely soon become commonplace in numerous features.)

A Monk’s Awakening proves to be especially successful in its ambitions and achieves its own perfectly formed world."
