Greatest movie since Rochele,Rochele
28 December 2001 | by weenisascotIIISee all my reviews

I believe that this movie should be watched by all people of every origin. The fifth monkey is a powerful and moving movie that has gone unnoticed and unrecognized for far too long. I think that The Fifth Monkey should be rereleased into theatres for all those people that missed it the first time. I give this movie 1,000,000 thumbs up!!!

Do not miss your chance to see this spectacular melodrama of life and love.
