Don't miss this one!
13 January 2012 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

Usually I don't like the Italian films because they are somehow naive. Surprisingly in that one, the actors play at a very high level. Servillo is on top as usually. Realistically made​​, the film describes the real events surrounding the collapse of a large Italian company producing dairy products. If not mistaken, the actual prototype is Parmalat.

Other interesting titles like this theme are: - The Inside Job (although documentary,very interesting), which depicts the premises and the development of American financial crisis of 2008 caused deliberately by the financial circles, the government and a whole host U.S. presidents. While in The Jewel the abuse is focused around the company's management. - Margine Call. Describes the collapse of one of the banks that provoked the financial crisis 2008. Pretty unrealistic in comparison to The Jewel. - Boiler room - a financial crash micro cosmos.

Do not miss this film.
