Critic Reviews for Workforce (Mano de obra)
Though modestly made, this drama is both fleet - at just 82 minutes - and very precise, steadily working its way toward a payoff that is understated yet packs a punch.
It's a taut, concise, bracingly uneasy film, all the more involving because it starts off promising a realistic drama of the working life, almost in a Loachian vein, then becomes something else entirely, something closer to an absurdist political parable.
This feature debut from writer-director David Zonana progresses like a quietly humming thriller, with each scene contributing to the film's gathering power.
Zonana's righteous anger doesn't manifest in hand-wringing. Rather, in the Neo-Realist tradition, it's greed and hubris that results in tragedy: the Greek Gods here being the capitalist system which forces its denizens always to aim upwards.
A convincing portrait of how fantasies are unsustainable in our cruel and pessimistic world. [Full Review in Spanish]
