Unsatisfactory comedy
30 May 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

During and after Argentina's economic meltdown in 1998-2002 many factories, closed by their owners, were occupied by the workers who walked in, unrolled sleeping mats and refused to leave. They faced off against the bosses, the bankers, the police and the whole globalization profit-first system and in many cases won; some factories continued functioning instead of being scrapped. This is the subject of the 2004 documentary The Take by Avi Lewis and Naomi Klein.

Director and scriptwriter Marcelo Mangone has attempted a comedic view of these happenings. However, a key weakness of the script is that the factory in question has been abandoned for a long time and it's obviously impossible to restart short of complete reconstruction, and that the only person occupying the factory is a delusional, deranged former worker.

The action is slow and there are interminable and repetitive discussions between characters. A missed opportunity.
