Whether it’s an immaculately creative extension of self or a fine work of cinematography, A monster call is a beautiful adaptation of transferred grief and aggression.

The movie is an adaptation of the young adult novel by Patrick Ness. Starring is the bereaved Conor who suffers the grief of powerlessly watching his mother succumb to an illness and conflicting internal issues. The 13-year-old carries an indecipherable burden of rage on his chest.

His nemesis is a monster, a seemingly extension of himself created in his mind, played by Liam Neeson.

Connors inability to face or try to understand the war raging in him leads to the beckoning of his demons which beautifully turns out to be on his side. The nightmare begins with a caving in of a church by an earthquake that takes his mother. Connor feels the burden of not being able to save her. In an attempt to escape his demons, he creates an imaginary world through art drawings which eventually comes to life as a giant old tree monster.
