The Film adaptation of Felix Austria aka Maid in Law, released in Ukraine
With the support of Government of Ukraine and the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine, the debut feature film by Christina Sivolap was released on January 16th and then, screened at EFM.
The plot revolves around the controversial relationship between maid Stefania Chornenko and blueblood Adelia Anger. Both Stefania’s parents and Adelia’s mother died during the fire in 1868. Doctor Anger, Adelia’s father, adopted neighbors’ orphan. Girls grew up together to become as close as sisters, though Stefania served as the maid. This attachment develops into love-trap: on one hand full of mutual manipulation and jealousy, but equally based on сare and devotion. The illusion of balance was broken when Adelia married sculptor Petro. Everything gets even more complicated when Joseph, the old love interest of Stefa, returns to town as the priest and married man.
EWA member Nadiia Zaionchkovska is the producer of the film, a romantic drama with a “culinary touch” directed by Christina Sivolap and produced by FILM.UA Production with a crew with many women in the key positions.
