  • Why doesn't everyone just jump on the platform, go all the way to the bottom and then get sent to level 0? Its not like they have anything to lose if they're just gonna die from starvation anyways

  • I definitely believe that the little girl was an halucination, and when you reach the bottom, you can't go deeper. He realized that the platform won't go up if someone step on it, and so he abandon the ship and die alone. The food was an interesting message, and to be honest I even expected a clean mecanism that flush away the platform anyway, that makes the administration never hear about any attent of message. I love that even if you do a good ratio, you cannot properly feed 666 people anyway. This means something very morbid: even if you share your part, just as showing the good behavior, ignoring if people will help you or not (I turn off tap water when I brush my teeth, even if it doesn't make a difference, I do my part, at least), there is still not enough food for everyone clearly. The message is incredibly dark: You are fucked.

  • They could've just put a dead body on the platform, they will definitely would've taken some action, if they did not know

  • Ugh I hate endings like these. So unsatisfying.

  • One thought that I had while watching this movie: People who were in the last rooms, especially 333, couldn't they just go onto the platform within the 1st days and go up without starving?

  • The mom protects and feeds the child which is why the child survives, the child doesn’t have a prison mate which makes it a secret and is the perfect set up cause the mom becomes the crazy lady.
    Remember that the mom kills on her way down, the child is on the lowest level so they need to feed off of the corpses.
    About what happens below 333 I don’t know nor do I know what happens when the child reaches level zero… that’s up for interpretation.

  • If each viewer of this comment likes it to around 666, we can bring it to the top.

  • The child is the message because once he reaches level zero it would lead people on that level to conclude that the child had made all the way to the bottom and has come back up. Since the platform zips past very fast on its way up the child has to have gone all the way down if he were to have climbed on it on any random level. This means that inspite of the starvation and death the people at the bottom were certainly facing, they have decided to spare the child's life. This underscores the fact that humanity is still alive and not completely forsaken. People would rather choose starvation that eating a child.

    This is quite similar to snowpiercer when Gary Oldman's helps awaken the humanity in the people of the last compartment by cutting off his own limb and offering it to be eaten in exchange for sparing the child's life.

  • this is clearly a message about socialism, which we are experiencing now. Work grinds to a halt, grocery stores run low, waiting on govt checks (2 equal amounts), banning guns and ammo. Don't change my mind, change your own. For all you bernie fans. Also, look at countries like Italy with open boarders.

  • The thing is, what they see on the last floor is definitely not real. Baharat is already dead on that floor because of his very bad wounds and our guy is just hallucinating. This is also the reason why the room doesn't get cold or hot because they actually didn't give any food to anyone. The girl is just a hallucination too. The ending scene is just happening in his head and he is dying. The only real thing is that they really kept the dessert and it made it to the top. Somewhere in the movie before these last scenes we actually see the chef being all mad about the cake being sent back up without being touched. This shows us they definitely did not get the "message", they took the "message" differently.

  • I thought of a different theory, matching the movie with dantes inferno as well as don quixote. I saw a lot of similarities between the hole and the 9 circles of hell, in many ways especially when the movie turned more supernatural. The ghosts of his cellmates help him through the layers going up and down. But the descent only starts with Baharat, every few floors the behaviors change matching every circle. There are 666 people in the hole and 333 floors, and many of the inmates reffer to it as hell. Leading into the book don quixote, as well as matching the character. He matches the writer of the book, who wrote it while being held captive to keep his sanity.

  • I think a lot of people are missing an important thing. The Woman that was looking for "the child" went to the hole Alone. I think there's a possibility that She went in pregnant and maybe didnt knew. Or She got preagnant in there (maybe thru sexual abuse). And many people Said that She was looking for her kid. But She was never looking, because She knew where her Daughter was. She just wanted to feed her and Keep her safe.

  • "The mother of the child" is not the mother of the child
    Because she went to the hole alone she just knew the message

  • Wow I knew that the movie was trying to convey a message but I didn't realize it was this much and there's probably even more

  • trimagasi is the perfect example of politicians here in the PHILIPPINES. they will take something apart from you which is taxes and they will give you only the smallest amount of what’s remaining.

  • The most Bullcrap nonsense 🙄 "explanation" of the allegory.
    I've read the Director and Writer meanings. You're seeing this AS YOU ARE and not as this movie speaks.
    You politicize and compare it as an evil Capitalistic BS. Clearly your Democratic Socialism leanings blind you. Using your absurd political comparison, then Socialism is just like the allegory that says It's impossible! Because everyone that goes up takes on the greed and quickly forget their hunger days. History shows us same thing. All revolutionists in history in every nation attempted, they wanted a pipe dream Eutopia and those very same revolutionists become like those moved to higher levels.
    The Democrats wanted to sell this dream of hope and change, what happened? The Left became the ELITISTS TRASH and are pissed they lost power.
    Read FORBES take on the meaning.. it is very similar to the Spanish Writer that spoke on the allegories in Madrid.

  • I liked the movie concept but i think the protagonist could have made a much bigger impact on the society if he had just waited out his last month, got free, and made a real case out of it on social media or something…
