I doulia tis

Her Job

 
Panayota (schauspielerisch brillant: Marisha Triantafyllidou) lebt mit Kindern und Mann in Athen. Der verspielt das bisschen Arbeitslosengeld, anstatt einen schlecht bezahlten Job anzunehmen. Panayota kümmert sich allein um den Haushalt und hat nicht viel zu sagen. Als sich die finanzielle Lage zuspitzt, nimmt sie, zum ersten Mal in ihrem Leben, einen Job an - als unterbezahlte Putzkraft im neu errichteten Einkaufszentrum, nicht gerade zur Freude ihres Ehemanns. Mit Bedacht und realitätsnah erzählt Nikos Labôt in seinem Debüt von einer Frau, die erste Schritte Richtung Emanzipation wagt. (Katharina Riedler)

Panayiota, a 37-year-old functionally illiterate housewife, leads a quiet life with her husband and their children in a modest neighborhood in Athens, Greece. To cope with the recession that has been affecting her family for some time, Panayiota goes for the first time in her life and finds a job as a cleaner in a shopping mall. Despite the ruthlessness of her work environment, Panayiota breaks free from domestic monotony and gradually gains the respect she never had from her family. When a series of layoffs starts, she will have to face her personal dead ends anew. But Panayiota cannot be the same anymore.
