Storyline

During IMF & World Bank Summit and demonstrations which upset Madrid, like other capitals, major corporation Dekia holds interviews to recruit a top executive from seven applicants. Their doubts start when they have to sign a clause accepting the Grönholm method, which nobody ever heard of. It soon becomes clear the tests are dirty mind games, but never what is true and what the trick. They must guess who among them is the HR mole, and repeatedly eliminate one of their number from the procedure. Their priorities, ethics and loyalty are put trough stressing tests. Written by KGF Vissers

the best Spanish-Argentinian cinema ever
2 January 2006 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

El method is probably the best movie of the 2005.With a exceptional script and great actors. This movie represents the human feelings of group of candidates who want to get a job.It's a psychological movie. The director mix the best actors of Spain and Argentina to get a successful movie that you should watch!! The group of candidates represent all the stereotypes that you can find in a company!! this movie won't go to the Oscars because (obaba) another Spanish movie has a director with better reputation and for this reason the Spanish academy has decided to select (obaba)instead of the method But the method is a exceptional movie!!
