Storyline

'Every day is another day closer to the day I'll never have to do this again.' Five women, one restaurant, one night, one birthday, one breakdown. Then the phone rings. A famous actor is coming for dinner. I Really Hate My Job is the story of an evening in a café in London's Soho. As in so many jobs, nothing much happens - except laughter, song, rage, collapse, intrigue, cooking, lying, nudity, conversation, secrets, love, friendship, ageing, hatred, rat-infestation and the arrival of a movie star. I Really Hate My Job. Who hasn't said it? A career. It's what happens when you lose control of a car on a wet road and it slams into a brick wall. You might assume they're just three waitresses, one cook and one dishwasher but they see themselves as an artist, an actor, a lover, an author and a philosopher. Written by Anonymous

All of us have said this at least once in a lifetime. Imagine 5 women working in a restaurant with frustration exploding their souls and customers waiting to be served...
10 June 2007 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

An excellent theatrical movie about 5 girls working in a restaurant but in fact looking for the meaning of their lives. Great acting on all 5 actresses, 2 of them being Romanian. Composition roles that request creativity and power: Shirley Henderson is a terrific almost hysterical woman and I would give her the Oscar for her performance. Oana Pellea is a delusional older woman, speaking just in philosophical words and behaving like nothing around her is happening; until frustration gets her too! I would like to see this script on stage eventually, and with same casting would be a stunning show. I saw the movie (an absolute world premiere) at TIFF (Transilvania International Film Festival) in Cluj, Romania, and I enjoyed every second of it.
