**The Platform is a unique story that asks some deep questions but ultimately left me disappointed.**

The Platform has such an intriguing concept that raises a variety of potent philosophical and moral questions and dilemmas. The film begs the question, “What if?” How would I respond in such dire and impossible circumstances? What would I do? As characters grapple with their desperate circumstances, a hero attempts to find hope by devising a plan to send a message to their captors and possibly save lives. Unfortunately, the movie doesn’t really provide any answers or assure any resolution or salvation. It just kind of ends after an hour and forty minutes of disturbing hopelessness. It probably has some deeper meaning that I missed but definitely not my kind of movie.

Review By: mooney240

A violent form of demonstration of the problems of capitalist society. Despite the fact that the level of violence is too much for me, I understand purpose of it for narration. Actually I find this film quite spiritual. The parallel between Jesus and Christian values is quite obvious.

Great idea, good movie
The idea behind the plot is interesting and the movie is effective and powerful but the end left me a bit confused and disappointed.

My analysis and interpretation of each character and the overall meaning
Writers: David Desola and Pedro Rivero Director: Galder Gaztelu-Urrutia

The Platform is a reflection of human nature in an everchanging individualistic society. It is a thought provoking story filled with gore, violence, and greed. A great film everyone should watch if they can stomach the gore. Some will blame capitalism failing to recognize the system changed to socialism which shows the fallacy of both systems with the humans in the condition of the platform.

Galder Gaztelu-Urrutia said, “There may be criticism of capitalism from the beginning, but we do show that as soon as Goreng and Baharat try out socialism to convince the other prisoners to willingly share their food, they end up killing half of the people they set out to help.”

So what does it mean? My analysis…

The platform can only go up or down and has rules to prevent hoarding. The rules of overeating or taking advantage from the top can only be prevented by the people. The people create a cruel or kind system by either overindulging or refraining from gluttony. The platform is a reflection of how human beings and their nature are dependent on their environment. It also shows the limited cohesiveness and isolation of people, preventing a genuine discourse. The separation breeds apathy for those below.

Additionally it has multiple layers that show how people who have more privileges will take advantage of the system. It also reflect the subjectivity of what is good or evil. In addition to displaying how some people change with respect to their status in society.

The film is a raw and open wound showing you the malleability and darkness of humans and human nature. People inevitable resort to inhumane behaviors to survive starvation. In times of prosperity, they will be kind, social, and caring. What are we? We are creatures that adapt to varying circumstances and we are most often good and evil, with the level of evilness increasing or decreasing depending on our situation and/ belief system. We are also people that can all benefit by uniting and making sacrifices as a group.

Goreng (protagonist) is an idealist. He encapsulate Don Quixote an idealist trying to bring back chivalry. Goreng just like Don Quixote never learns his behavior caused more harm than good and he didn’t fix anything. He represents the compassionate that recognize the people can make a bad situation better by having a singular mission of solidarity. While ignoring the reality that despair, hunger, and the need to survive overrides rationality. Also, failing to recognize he lacks the knowledge to understand the depts of depravity and if it can be fixed.

Trimagasi (old man) has learned how to survive in the system but doesn’t exploit it or try to change it. He reflects the average person that knows the system is flawed but recognize we aren’t in a position to fix it. He’s wise and a survivor by any means.

Miharu (women riding down platform) represents those who exploit the system. She always comes from the top, she kills and fights riding down to feed the child on the bottom of the platform (if that child exists). The platform rewards her barbarism by keeping her on the top level. Eventually despite learning and exploiting the system, she still gets consumed by it. She may represent the social activists, or people who try to help the most vulnerable despite their own flaws. Or she may personify people who choose to self-flagellate, while benefiting from the system. I believe she epitomize a search for hope in a distressing environment.

Imoguiri (ex admin worker) represents the person who knows the system exist but unaware of the cruelty and extent of the decay. She was ill-advised it’s only 200 floors and enough food for everyone. She encapsulates all citizens creating solutions without enough understanding to provide one that works. When she realizes the narrative she believed is false, she folds, unable to handle the depraved reality. She gave Goreng the idea about solidarity oblivious to the complexity of the environment. An idea he ran with because it sounded great in theory.

The meals prepared are everyone’s favorite food. In theory, if everyone takes their favorite food only, everyone will have something to eat. The reality is portion is not enough and those who are starving or hungry will want more. Those who are in the position to take more, will do so because they can. People who are starving on the bottom will be angry and envious at the top eaters but never angry at those who created the system in the first place. Once the hungry are in the higher position, they too act the same way, with no remorse due to their own treatment on the bottom and due to hunger. This is a great representation for those wanting equality for all when they have nothing and then wanting it all when they have everything.

Ramesses II, Imoguiri’s dog was eaten. He is named after a Pharaoh best known for creating the first peace treaty ever. He was a great leader and warrior. This represents the death of peace and the beginning of turmoil.

Baharat (later platform mate) is like Don Quixote’s squire Sancho Panza. He sees the problem and is willing to join Goreng to fix them. He, like Sancho tries to help Goreng fulfill his fantasy of equality while ultimately failing alongside him. He represents those who join a cause they believe in, in hopes for a better circumstance. He and Goreng employ authoritarian and violent means to construct equality, which convinces no one to change.

The little girl has double meanings, she is the innocent and weak in the system, she is also hope. She represents the group that cannot survive without help. This can include young children, the disabled, sick, or elderly. Helping this group is altruistic, while also can be dangerous for the helper (at least in the platform). If she exists, then she stays at the bottom because only cannibals go to the top.

As hope she survives in the hearts of those who have it. As an illusion (hope), she stays at the bottom because hope barely exists in a system such as the one in the platform.

Goreng never makes it to the bottom, the director confirms, the bottom doesn’t exist. What we see is a reflection of what he feels he needs to do. This explains why the 333 floor does not heat up or cool down and him walking as if he wasn’t injured later. Keep in mind, floor 333 with 2 people on each platform is 666, a number aligned with the devil. It may be a representation of hell. It’s possible no bottom exists and it’s an infinite bottomless hell.

On level zero, The cooks are clueless as to what is going on while meticulously creating delicious meals. They represent the people who have more power, people outside the system that can mobilize change but completely clueless about what is going on because they are too far removed from the ails of society. They are doing their best to ensure the people get their divine food not knowing, the food isn’t enough and will ultimately be trampled on, the lower it descends into the abyss. Are these people worker bees in the government? The elite behind their gated homes? Celebrities creating content? We can only guess. The only certainty is they are far removed from the suffering. When the panna cotta returned to the top uneaten, the head chef berates the others because he believes it’s because of the hair in the panna cotta. Proof they don’t understand the message behind the panna cotta being returned uneaten. This is a perfect example of how people on the outside have a perception far removed from the people adversely affected. While also exemplifying the non-communication between the people who can help and the people needing the help.

The system is created by an unknown group of people with no face or name. They know what’s going on because they move the people. The motives are unknown. They are ignored because the story is about people in a system and not the system itself.

The ending is ambiguous, and Imoguiri is an unreliable source of information on purpose. By her not knowing about level 201+, we will not know if the system stayed firm with the rule of 16 and under or not. What we do know is, whether the child exists or not, we never saw her, we saw a reflection of her through Goreng who was already dead. We also know the child is not Miharu’s child because she supposedly had a son.

The film brilliantly shows the wickedness of human beings whether for survival, selfishness, greed, or prosperity. Do you change the system or do you change the people? If the system cannot change, then how do you change the people to create fairness and prosperity without resorting to violence? The platform can be viewed as fair or unfair depending on your perspective. Everyone gets two minutes, no food can be stored, and everyone had their favorite food on the platform. The unfairness is the time to get your share. If everyone took only their favorite meal, then it is equal. At the same time, everyone would still be hungry due to the limited quantity. In an individualistic system, with limited resources, and where no one relies on the other, they have no incentive to be selfless.
