Storyline

In a not so distant future, where overpopulation and famine have forced governments to undertake a drastic One-Child Policy, seven identical sisters (all of them portrayed by Noomi Rapace) live a hide-and-seek existence pursued by the Child Allocation Bureau. The Bureau, directed by the fierce Nicolette Cayman (Glenn Close), enforces a strict family-planning agenda that the sisters outwit by taking turns assuming the identity of one person: Karen Settman. Taught by their grandfather (Willem Dafoe) who raised and named them - Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday - each can go outside once a week as their common identity, but are only free to be themselves in the prison of their own apartment. That is until, one day, Monday does not come home. Written by https://teaser-trailer.com

Goofs

In the showdown scene in the women's bathroom, the two characters switch positions in the mirror shot, most likely to create uncertainty in the viewer. Note the color of the sleeves at the shoulder (creme vs blue). To make matters worse, the style of the earrings also switched between both characters in the mirror shot. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Reporter: In the last 50 years we've doubled our population, tripled the amount of food and water we use, and we have quadrupled the use of fossil fuels. Every four days there's a million more people on the planet. How is the world going to cope with this explosion in population.

Wow......
9 October 2017 | by s3276169See all my reviews

How often do I get to say "wow" when I see a movie? Let me tell you, rarely......

What Happened to Monday is really quite brilliant. It takes the serious real world issue of overpopulation and pits it against the intrinsic human imperative to protect its offspring.

The inevitable collision that takes place when the need to see the species thrive at the expense of the individual, is the starting point of this film.

What happens in between is a cleverly crafted mix of sci fi, masterful storytelling, well executed action with a emotional component that's genuinely touching.

Noomi Rapace of "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" fame hands in yet another show stopping performance, nimbly and ably playing multiple characters, seemingly with ease. That's not to dismiss the performance of other cast members. This is a collectively polished affair.

This is, for me, a "must see" and possibly even "see again" sci fi. Ten out of ten from me.
