Review

After leaving her family and hometown, Elena tries to start a new life and finds a job in Frankfurt as a nanny. She works for Tessa who is a successful manager and mother in a middle-class family in Germany. After going through some conflicts, Tessa slowly builds trust for Elena. However, when she gets back home with her husband one day, she finds out her child is missing. To find her child back, she heads to Greece, Elena’s hometown. The stories in Germany and Greece are shown back to back to emphasize the difference between the current states of the two countries and to contrast the lives of two women. When these two different women meet, life is not better, but it heads for the worst. Both Tessa, who loses her child, and Elena, who runs away because she can’t handle the child, are victims of the limitation defined by the time. The demands for Tessa and Elena from the society as a mother, woman and lover, destroy their lives and lead to a terrible situation that they can’t even handle. This is what lies inside the reality. (LEE Sang-yong)
