  • Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film No Day Off

    Excellent short film following one of the wretched of the Earth through the mill of modern capitalism. The "agency" trains her, gets her from Indonesian village to Singapore, then take her first ten months' salary for their efforts. She's then employed by a couple of hilariously nasty families (hence the accusation that it's one-sided: but people like this exist) and works without a day off for years.
