... but in this case, it also needs this time. To establish the main character. A debt collector. Although Will Ferrell played a similar role to this one in a recent movie (Stranger than fiction), this movie is a drama not a comedy. But that doesn't take anything away from it or makes this less of a good movie.
The acting is really great and once the situation is established the main character has more problems to face than he would like to. To say more would be spoiling the movie for you. I think this is a little known gem, that should be seen by many people. It takes the boring situation of a job (see also other movies I reviewed) but spins it ... and that's why movies are made (emphasis lying on movies, not documentaries)!
