A Monster Calls is dark visionary masterpiece of fantasy & reality with subtle storytelling formula strengthened with great visuals and a very affecting plot. Majority may find it boring but if you look on the other side of the film, the film is actually inspiring & moving. A Monster Calls deeply touch your heart with scenes that cuts deep. The film is a wonderful and magical interpretation of accepting the hard facts of life and heal gradually in the process. Got me in tears on the climax. The scene was just heartwarming and meaningful. The movie combined animation and realism very well. Lots of symbolism used that will somehow let your imagination fly as the movie progresses. I can almost feel the heart and the soul of this touching story that was actually made to inspire instead of hitting the blockbuster wall. Kudos to the very talented cast. For me, one the most sensible film in Holloywood. 4/5 stars.
