Goofs

The child's movements while Sandra is in the store: She sits him on the counter to pay, he is too small to jump down, and we don't see her set him back on the floor. The next time we see him he's standing in one of the aisles while Sandra talks to another customer. During this less than 20 second conversation, no one enters or leaves the store as there is a bell on the door and we don't hear it. After she checks the store, the child is found outside in the parking lot. See more »

Monolith review
19 August 2017 | by marcellomontiSee all my reviews

I'm Italian but I have not been part of it. The film is not perfect (many mistakes by the plot and the actors) but I was very convinced of the concept of the story, taken from an Italian graphic novel. The protagonist might be less stupid, but the things he does go hand in hand with the plot context. The film deserves, a great innovation in Italian cinema, and a good bet for foreigners.
