I'm still sobbing as I write this. The film is very good but it is quite traumatic. It is a subtle meditation on grief (as symbolised by the monster) and will ring true to a lot of peoples experiences. Billed as a family film, though I fear young ones will be too scared by the monster and too upset by the subject matter. Brilliant performance from the young lead and a great script that isn't as heavy handed as it could have been.

Dizzyingly perfect. Don't read anything about it, just go and see. Make sure you bring plenty of tissues.

A Monster Calls is a movie that will take you on a roller-coaster of emotions. One of the best movies of 2016. Simply mind blowing ! Here is my quick review: [Like] + Stunning performances by all actors + Out of this world art and cinematography + Lots of drama and moral discussion + Captivating and deeply moving plot with a perfect flow + The movie leaves a long lasting impression. [Dislike] - Sorry but I couldn't find any Plot Complexity: Medium Best Movie Quote: Because humans are complicated beasts. You believe comforting lies, while knowing full well the painful truth that makes those lies necessary. In the end, Conor, it is not important what you think. It is only important what you do.

Apart from the last 15 minutes and the climax i believe the film delivered flat and cheap drama. The story was mediocre and the whole movie didn't pass above average

“There is not always a good guy. Nor is there always a bad one. Most people are somewhere in between.”

Before seeing the movie, I didn't know much about "A Monster Calls". The only information I got from it is that it's based on Patrick Ness novel and the trailer had a "Ir More

A Monster Calls is a film that tackles a difficult and very emotional subject and wraps it up in a fantasy-monster tale. It could be awful, really bad, but in this case, thankfully the topic and the way it is portrayed and told to the viewer is handled admirably. As is always the case with these typ More

**An alternate way to confront the reality.**

Based on the British novel, made by a well known Spanish director. This film might remind you the titles like 'Finding Neverland', 'Where the Wild Things Are', 'Neverwas' et cetera, but still it is unique. Particularly for the message it carried out. More

This is a very enjoyable tale. It's targeted to younger viewers, and therefore the characters are not at all complex. In spite of that shortcoming from an adult's POV, the overall effect is wonderful and emotional. Definitely worth the time.
