Will Love Survive Class Differences?
The film "Shelter" by Marco S. Puccioni is a film that exhibits the personal and interpersonal relationship between two women (who happen to be lovers) and the involvement of an illegal immigrant who enters both of their lives only to demonstrate and unfold by chance all the problems between the two protagonists.
The relationship between the two women seems to deteriorate at the beginning of the film. Anna, discovers Anis and chooses not to tell her lover, Mara. Anna assumes all the responsibility or power in her decision not to tell Mara. This perfectly foreshadows the lost of trust and hope between Anna and Mara..
However, the young boy, Anis is used as a pawn, between the two women to use at their disposal in order to display power. Is this a subconscious statement made by Mr. Puccioni concerning the West's problems with the South?
But we obviously see the class differences from Anna to Mara and from Mara to Anis. At some point, all three people need each other in order to exist and change, but at the expense of whom?
