Ratings & Reviews

  1. Robert H. Stevens's rating of the film Office

    Truly unlike anything else I've ever seen. A 2008 Financial Crisis Hong Kong musical.

  2. petit astronaute's rating of the film Office

  3. Naoya Kugimiya's rating of the film Office

  4. José Neves's rating of the film Office

    The emphatic speech, an attribute of Hong Kong's cinema, not always glue in the style of all the films, being especially the prerogative of thrillers, motion movies where the rhetoric may be welcome. In this failed musical (as a musical), this style reiterates its emphasis but not the match. And yet, its scenic lushness, intersecting scenarios on each other, is a great parable/paraphrase of capitalist globalization.

  5. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film Office

    Here, the rhythm is high and the romance feels busy, taken from a confidently built screenplay that only lacks that eminent emotional touch to become a little more than just an agreeable entertainment.

  6. knockkneed's rating of the film Office

  7. Lucas Granero's rating of the film Office

    Si el capitalismo es escencialmente un invento americano las coordenas para contarlo deben responder tambien a las lógicas que ese propio sistema inventó para narrarse. Asi, To disecciona el mundo de los negocios filmando un musical en 3D. Sus motivos son claros: todo debe ser exagerado y excesivo porque así lo es el mundo de hoy. La felicidad aquí es puro efecto especial y el dinero el motor de todas las acciones.
