Puzzled feminism
30 September 2010 | by stenssonSee all my reviews

She has her 50th anniversary and does all the work, including serving her guests, which are ignoring her. But she gets one useful present. This puzzle.

An this Argentinian housewife suddenly is blessed with talent, something nobody including her family family had ever thought of. This is about her slowly breaking out, meeting a puzzle partner who trains her until they can enter a competition together. There was a way out.

A fine little movie with low voice, never arguing. Heroism can also be about sitting at a table. It mostly is, in this thing we call life. The heroism which really changes it.
