A woman comes across the difficulties of modern work: to force her to resign from her job, her firm tries all the humiliation techniques known as "mobbing". The film is based upon real cases reported by Italian unions.
Camille Dugay Comencini,
This Italian A feature is like a number of their films (Mare Nero eg.) starting off with seemingly unrelated characters who become more familiar and converge as the intrigue progresses, a departure from the Hollywood model where any lack of clarity is shunned.
The cast are superior,the Milanese settings striking and the subject, now mature Golino's police captain confronting magnate Zingaretti and telling him "It's our country too. You can't do as you like!" has some substance.
Unfortunately all the elements, that are put in place so laboriously, don't come together in any interesting way. There is a distinct so what feeling once you've gotten through the substantial running time.
