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

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.

Noomi Rapace pulls this one off the mud
21 August 2017 | by scandinavianmailSee all my reviews

Not thanks to anyone else but her own skills to act against herself, Noomi Rapace single-handedly carries What Happened to Monday from start to finish, in seven roles that each gets a moment to make them alive. She holds the attention when the script and fellow actors don't have much to contribute, and when the surprisingly violent action takes off, she doesn't hold back anything. Half the score goes to her performance alone.

Least memorable are the quickly setup one-child dystopia and the expected thugs and their masters who maintain the uninspired system. Glenn Close does what Glenn Close has done many times, and yet another movie fails to make up its mind is she really evil or profoundly right. It would have made a better movie had they scrapped the poorly drafted political storyline altogether and concentrated on Rapace's low-level survival. Every movie needs not save the mankind.
