Tribulations of an office worker
3 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie rest squarely on the shoulders of the Argentine comedian Norman Briski; he seems to be present in every scene. If you like Briski's brand of comedy you'll probably like the movie, if you find Briski often annoying (as I do) your enjoyment will be diminished.

The script is by the director Fernando Ayala and Ricardo Talesnik, based on a play by Talesnik. It makes some good (if not original) points about the life of an office worker, but it is rather thin. Ayala's direction is dynamic, brilliant in some scenes, but is weighted down by the script.

A young Norma Aleandro does, as usual, an excellent job. The supporting cast is good. Musical score is by Astor Piazzola.
