Slow burner like the pace of those with nothing to look forward to. Film highly combative reflecting on the dramatic social consequences of political decisions, desindustrialisation and the pride of the working class. It is also an allegation against those political systems that prevailed after the collapse of communism in the 80s and tipped the balance of social and economic power in favour of speculative forces.
Universal tale that seems even more poignant a decade plus on. A group of laid off shipyard workers lives seem to be stuck as they take comfort in each other's company but are unable to move on to the next chapters in their respective lives. Astute character study and often quite moving featuring knockout turns by the majority of the cast especially Tosar.
