What Happened to Monday (2017)


“What happens to one of you, happens to all of you. ” – Terrence Settman

Number of Times Seen – 1 (19 Oct 2021)

Brief Synopsis – In a not so distant future where over-population is causing havoc in the world, a man hides the fact that his wife gave birth to seven daughters which gets even more complicated as they grow up.

My Take on it – Such a clever idea that works so well.

Noomi Rapace is superb in the lead role and plays all seven of the sisters in very diverse ways that allows for each of them to have their own personality along the way.

The story comes across as being quite realistic due to the way that they explain things… despite the fact that nothing in a thriller is ever as simple as it may seem.

Willem Dafoe is also great as the father trying to hide train and teach his daughters about the world that they cannot ever visit together.

The action scenes are choreographed really well and that adds so much to the suspense as the story begins to unfold.

They set up a great idea for a mystery and allow the other characters to try and follow the breadcrumbs in order to uncover the truth.

The special effects are also great here and seem like stepping stones from what we are accustomed to nowadays which adds to the reality of it all.

The twists and turns are quite engaging here and give the viewer so much to wrap their mind around.
