What does big business know about PR?
25 October 2009 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

As most people who have seen it or will see it know, Dole put a law-suite on the filmmaker. It started an immense fuzz in Sweden, with boycotts from hamburger and supermarket chains, not to talk about the common consumers. After a while Dole dropped the case. Did they really think they would get anything but bad-will from acting the way they did?

And how is the movie? It's effective, merciless and quite exciting. Not at least the scenes from the courtroom. Is it objective? No, according to old documentary traditions, it isn't. It's part of a debate and if you're against that, you really have to explain your views on democracy.

And Dole really has to check the competence of those who work in their marketing department.
