The French film Rosetta uses symbolism as a conduit to portray the cover up of a shameful life and the laborious struggle to burrow to a normal life with no light at the end of the tunnel Although Rosetta loves her very much anguish is augmented by the unprecedented lifestyle of her inebriated mother Rosetta is steadfast to keep a real job and loses her only friend in the process of doing so Through trials and tribulations she realizes that a normal life consists of much more than a job and the cloaking of her family and paucity Physically Rosetta is extremely tough but emotionally she is a timorous Her story begins with her termination at a factory She pleads with her boss and begins kicking and screaming She is peeled off of anything she can hold on to and forced to leave An abundance of downward spiraling emotions clot her thoughts as she rides her daily bus towards the mud-ridden house of lost souls she calls home Stopping to buy a waffle and some beers she inquires about a job She is denied for the moment but a young man takes interest in her without regard from Rosetta I was aware of Rosettas shame when she got off the bus She crossed roads and crawled through bushes to enter her trailer park from the back Dress shoes were exchanged for mud boots expressing the paltry standards of her home She slipped through a homemade opening in the fence as if to sneak past the eyes of normal society The maternal inefficiencies of her mother were exposed with an argument over here intoxication Rosetta knows that her mother slept with the landlord for some liquor The ideals of a normal life are further shattered as they duel over a fish given to her mother by the same landlord Rosetta puts her pride before begging and food for that matter She resorts to trapping fish
