Storyline

It seems like an abundance of possibilities. After screening the newspaper, there are five interesting job openings. Surely one of them must be to her taste. An interviewee goes to a job interview at five different companies, but those bosses are all the same. All they want is an employee who does everything by herself (so they can sit and do nothing) and who, preferably, doesn't require any health insurance to be paid for. This is getting really frustrating. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Interesting short with a great twist.
27 June 2001 | by sehguhc19See all my reviews

Usually the case in film shorts, this had a surprise ending. I really enjoyed the satire on our shallow society and the utter lack of appreciation for other people. The most shallow boss of all had to be Amy Sedaris' character, considering that she answered questions with her eightball and was more interested in the interviewee's jacket than her credentials.

Instead of getting frustrated by her five rejections, the interviewee didn't leave the interview calmly... she took action. This film was probably the product the director's knowledge of what everyone wants to do when incredibly frustrated. This was an inventive short.
