Written by Max Botkin and Kerry Williamson, the film tells the story of identical sevenfold twins struggling to stay hidden in an overpopulated world where, under the “one child” policy, having siblings is illegal.
Directed by Tommy Wirkola, the film begins with the birth of the sevenfold and the death of his mother. From then on, his grandfather struggles to keep them alive and hidden from the police. Named for each day of the week, not to reveal the existence of the seven sisters, he creates a unique identity, Karen Settman (Noomi Rapace), and each incarnates her on the day of his name.
The plot unfolds from an abnormal delay of Second, which triggers a number of problems.
The story that takes the film forward is very different and original, although it is based on the much-used “pre-apocalyptic world” environment. The idea of illustrating the planet of the future, living a reality of 2073, brings with it a series of technological equipment, present in other films and serials with the same purpose.
An important point to highlight is the division of personalities among the seven sisters. At this point, we perceive an abusive use of clichés. We have the nerdy and super smart sister, the sloppy sister, the sister in the rock ‘n roll style, the sister upright and committed to schedules and so on.
An important but poorly presented character was a sibling allocation agent (Willem Dafoe). It appears briefly at the beginning of the film, but ends up being one of the main ones to save the lives of the sisters.
The film runs away from the novelist’s idea of “doing everything right at the end” or “happy ending”, since during the development of the film, you can already see that the end will not be as happy as you could imagine at the beginning.
Overall, the film has its fun moments and brings a pretty coherent idea, although it rests on a very common theme. This is a good distraction for any day.
