This Italian film is a women\'s version of The Adventure by Michelangelo Antonioni. The modernist film tells a story about the pursuit by Claudia 30-year-old to find the missing Ukrainian woman, Olga. Claudia working at a travel company takes lessons in Russian at night. There she meets a tentative teacher named Boris in his 40s from the Ukraine, and has relations with him. One day Boris asks Claudia to let his female cousin from Ukraine stay at her place for a while, but his cousin named Olga turns up missing shortly after arriving to stay with her. Claudia then gives up a vacation to Greece and looks for Olga. Where is she? As alluding from its title As the Shadow, the film delivers the social philosophical theme that the more increasingly ephemerality, anonymousness, the population with migration are in the capitalist globalization, the more isolated and worthless the human beings living there are. Thus one\'s being missing could go unnoticed by anyone. As it works out the theme it is in an excellent modernist form beyond the mere insight on presence and disappearance. (KIM Sunah)
