In their search for work, a group of workers face familiar frustrations. Cedrón raises his own conflicts and tries to understand their cause. As in all his other films, the director sets his sight on aspects of reality that are not well observed.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
3 and a half lies to feed the mouths which have to eat today. Cedron's Other Trade is a neo-realist social indictment of anti-unionism/Capitalism on the one hand; and the more universal demoralization of all economic victims on the other. Nice informal acting and camera work. Although the only print in existence is badly damaged it was restored digitally
in both visuals and sound, leaving it at least watchable.
