Mammoth (Mammut) Reviews
It's pretty much a movie about unhappy people. I could see what they were aiming for with the parallels. Ie, Michelle Williams plays a working mum who doesn't have enough time to spend with her family. Meanwhile the Filipino nanny is working for her, practically raising her daughter, while she misses her own little boys at home in the philippines. I found both these women sympathetic. Less so the husband.
The story about what happens to the young son of the nanny is horrific. I think the stories were a comment on life today and priorities, but I couldn't get the point about the husband. So he cheats with a young girl and gets away with it. Were we meant to pity him in some way? I certainly didn't!
Overall a good movie which maybe I didn't quite get, but good acting and great soundtrack.
The film is well structured, balanced and connected in the formulaic 3.
It's a story about sacrifices and those we sacrifice because of said sacrifices. Everyone kills something within themselves. Children and motherhood are the main characters. At the end we can see that the cycle restarts once again.
Overall it's an OK film... depressing, well produced and chuck full of details that the spectator must stay aware of.
