Where is home? And how reliable can a job be? Especially if you are a foreigner, in a country that goes through an economic crisis. While that crisis is not something that anyone wants, it does give us movies like this, because the filmmakers do face those situations. Making our main protagonist a housekeeper, who has to stay low, but still be "part" of the family is genius thinking.
Good thinking if you like slow burning movies that is. It is sort of predictable where it goes and the "villains" (or their acting) is more than predictable, but this does not take away any of the impact the movie can have (again, if you are accessible to it). There is a lot of Drama and a lot of confusion and a lot of Anger. It's a mixture of what people feel and gives us a peek into alienation. In more than one sense ... Where to go with a broken heart though?
