Psychological drama that pits a worker against their boss? In America this would end a lot differently...
13 May 2004 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

Italian actress Nicoletta Braschi plays a character that gets put through the corporate ringer and amazingly 'rolls with the punches' while trying to raise her latchkey daughter alone. Amazingly, she never loses control though what's being done to her certainly warrants a violent outburst. Apparently in Italy, what she goes through with her new manager at work in a technique called 'mobbing', where a new merging company is unable to fire longtime employees so they do everything possible to humiliate the worker to get them to quit on their own. During the course of the movie 'Anna' (Braschi) is transferred numerous times within the company to more and more demeaning jobs (she's put in charge of running the copy machine at one point) until finally ... well I don't want to spoil it for you. Suffice to say this is a very sobering account of unethical corporate policy and it is told very realistically with little or no humor at all (though some comic relief would have been gratefully appreciated by this reviewer). Good one to see if you want to get the heads up on a dirty practice that still goes on today in the corporate world.
