Excellent, subtle, truthful
3 November 2015 | by floatingpolarbearSee all my reviews

This is extraordinarily good film-making aimed at an intelligent audience. The plot revolves around an ordinary woman who undergoes a banal yet tremendous crisis alone, left to her own devices, without a helping hand. In a sense it is the story of most women, mothers, unrecognized heroes who make the magic illusion of a normal life happen for their children in a dog eat dog world. The main actress is splendid as she portrays a rather restrained, generic middle school teacher who has certain fixed ideas about what is correct and honorable. Sudden danger to the core of her family puts her through a series of trials which force her, and us, to examine easy assumptions about honor and behavior.
