Monas verden (eng. Mona's World) is a Danish film from 2001, directed by Jonas Elmer.

The actors could work relatively freely of a script by Nikolaj Peyk.[2] The story was first created by Jonas Elmer with Sidse Babett Knudsen, and given to the actors (12-13 pages). A test filming of the improvisation took place, and was then made into the script by Nikolaj Peyk.[3]

Jonas Elmer also had the idea of creating a website where everybody could write suggestions for the film, such as the actor's lines, the locations, the poster, taglines, logos, and the plot of the film.[4] The website ( was put up in 2000.
