Description

Javier Bardem is the charismatic and manipulative factory owner Blanco—his company makes industrial scales—who craves a local award for business excellence. To win, everything must run smoothly. But Blanco's world is threatened by a fired employee bent on revenge, a depressed superintendent, and an amorous and ambitious intern. In order to restore balance to his company, the \\"good boss\\" shamelessly meddles in the private lives of his employees, setting in motion an explosive chain reaction with major consequences… ‘Slickly-made and entertaining… Bardem’s performance, as a man who has spent a lifetime hiding his unethical behaviour behind the veneer of patrician affability and who seems to have lost his feel for what’s right and wrong, has a depth and complexity that… is indeed bravura stuff.’—Jonathan Holland, Screen
