Netflix action The Platform 2, a Netflix-exclusive thriller, The Platform was among the most talked about films of the year, when it premiered in March. It proved to be an unintentionally timed.
The film was released within the context of the current world crisis which provided the Spanish film a new dimension due to the fact that the inhabitants of the Vertical Self-Management Center literally fight over the ration of food each day.
It also helped to note that the Platform has a big problem unanswered and has an unclear conclusion. Could there be a possibility of an additional film?
This is how the plot allows for a sequel. Each month, inmate Goreng is randomly assigned in a new level, and ultimately, he decides to make changes to the system.
There’s enough food available for every degree, provided that everybody only eats only what they require (hi an appropriate the social symbolism …), which is why he embarks on a risky quest to make sure a message is directed to the person who is who are in charge of the hole.
At beginning, Goreng and fellow inmate Baharat think that the message is making sure that a luxurious pannacotta returns to the top of the line. However, when they encounter an unassuming girl at level 333, they realize that she’s an important “symbol” they need to return.
Baharat dies of injuries he suffered in an earlier fight. Goreng realizes that he isn’t able to join her So he steps off the platform. When the next time it comes the girl is able to climb onto the platform and makes her way all up to the top.
The film doesn’t show the girl climb the mountain or the reaction of the administration to her appearance, but director Galder Gazteluu-Urrutia admitted to Digital Spy that there was a different storyline in the original.
“We actually did film a different ending of the girl arriving at the first level, but we took it out of the movie. I’ll leave what happens to your imagination,” said the director. joked.
The whole thing could be all within the thoughts of a dead Goreng as well: “To me, that the lowest level isn’t there. Goreng is dead before his arrival and it’s all just his opinion of what he thought that he needed to do.
“Ultimately I wanted it to be open to interpretation, whether the plan worked and the higher-ups even care about the people in the pit.”
This suggests that Gaztelu-Urrutia isn’t in the desire to create the follow-up in the wake of the Platform The Platform, and He hasn’t yet made any statements about whether there will be another sequel, considering the mystery it leaves unanswered and the ambiguous conclusion.
The possibility of an expansion is definitely there even in the event that the director did not want to answer directly the mystery of the film’s ending.
An upcoming sequel of The Platform could be a prequel that focuses on the roots of the hole, considering that the vast majority of the information we get from the film about the hole proves to be false
We don’t have many details about the reason what the motive behind the hole is and what the purpose is. His first level-mate, Trimagasi, was imprisoned in the hole for killing somebody, however Goreng decides to stop smoking.
Imoguiri who was employed by the administration and who was a member of the administration, tells Goreng that this hole is basically an experiment in social norms to build “spontaneous solidarity”, while Goreng believes that the reverse is the case. If there was a feeling of solidarity within the hole, the top officials would know how to prevent it from happening on the outside.
We believe that there is no chance of a sequel in the near future, since Platform appears to be a film that was created as a single-shot. To comprehend the movie and its story it isn’t necessary to know everything about the background. In fact, that’s what they told us about Cube(two sequels and counting).
We’re also not certain we’d like to know what will happen to her after she gets to the top since most viewers of the Platform prior to its moments of optimism towards the end is quite dark and harsh toward the human condition.
Will the administration be able to recognize the mistake of their approach and seal the gap when they meet the girl? Or is it more likely that they look for an alternative to avoid making the same mistake again?
There is a chance for a follow-up story to the Platform however, at the moment it seems like a return to the pit is not likely.
