Great movie about working to live and not the other way
17 May 2015 | by (Moscow, Russia) – See all my reviews

I stumbled on this film when Helen made a guest appearance at Conan O'Brien show in May'15 promoting the film. If I recall correctly she said that she produced it, did the casting etc and her most favorable part was that she could pick male actors (like it is usually men cast women and this time it is all different) and essentially define not only the storyline but all the details. What she hadn't mentioned was I guess that the core-story was quite personal for her (although I wouldn't know for sure if this was the love or the children or something else).

Although the story seems to be around a classic mother-son relationship challenges ( and some reviewers indeed look at the film like it is such a cliché - This is where I would apparently disagree with them) what I noticed is a different sense layer that is more focused on a philosophical "enjoying life" (and I put this into the subject line) question that I assume many people eventually run into.

I wouldn't reveal the details, but I believe that one can find something in this movie that looks quite refreshing in terms of breaking work-sleep- work chain and triggers some further thinking on how it should be "right".
