Cast & Credits
If you're over the first 20 minutes, the movie gets a lot more interesting and you really feel this is what happens in real life.
The movie tells the story about the life of four woman. All are living very different lifestyles, but the main question is the same for all four. Am I still allowed to behave like a little girl even when I am over 30 years old? If yes, how much of a girl is allowed and how much of being a woman? What is the role of a woman in society anyways? Is it okay to put work over the family and be the one who earns the money or should you marry and give birth to children while your husband is in charge of earning the money?
All four main roles are struggling to find an answer to all these questins during the movie and in the end provide a quite acceptable one.
I think would recommend this movie to all the women (and men) who are around 25 years old, because I think these are the questions we are all struggling with by ourselves. Of course it's also possible to watch it when you're "only" 15, but you might have a different view on all the things that are showed what doesn't mean you won't like it.
However, the movie kept me thinking about my own life and it's true that women do not lead an easy life at all, but men neither...
The acting was nice, but not outstanding. All four main actresses were able to go with the flow of the story, but you won't be stunned about their performance. They're nice to watch an in my eyes this suits the movie!
I liked the music and I might look for the OST, because I think it's nice to listen to it again.
As I said, of you make it through the beginning, I'm sure you'll come to like the movie, so give it a try^^
