  • Film works best as a soberly witty commentary on the workplace and makes an interesting companion piece to "Mondays in the Sun." show more

  • While the director-screenwriter clearly has a sensitive affinity for his characters, his film lacks narrative momentum and fresh observations. show more

  • The actresses create wonderfully rich characters, and Luis Callejo, as Caye's unknowing boyfriend Manuel, and Antonio Durán, as the sadistic civil servant, fill out the very strong cast. show more
