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.

Goofs

If it was 2073 (as shown on the stage of that gala )and CAB was introduced 30 years ago than it was 2043 when the movie started then from the iconic quote it is stated that "in 50 years we have doubled our population" but population in 1993 was over 5billion, so it should have been more than 10 billion in 2043 itself but in the next line it says that by the end on the decade it is estimated to reach 10 billion which means 2050 so clearly contradiction is there.

Enjoyable Dystopian Sci-Fi
2 April 2021 | by mujali-48677See all my reviews

This movie is not without its faults. There are plot holes and some completely unrealistic scenarios. However, I'm not one who looks for every box to be ticked and can let these things slide, as long as the film makes up for it in other aspects such as whether it's enjoyable or not. It does so, in my opinion, with a timely, thought-provoking theme. Also, it is well-paced and there wasn't a dull moment. And Glenn Close was genuinely terrifying.
