Storyline

Casual Day is a company practice imported from the USA. Every Friday the workers are asked to exchange their suits for more informal attire. Different companies plan their Casual Days in different ways: some organise a trip to the countryside or activities intended to better personal relations between their workers, reduce stress and improve business performance. Ruy has always lived as he liked. Though clever, he's gotten himself into a jam. José Antonio, his girlfriend's father, has earmarked an important job for him in his company. He wants him to be his successor. At the age of 25, without actually having decided anything, he's trapped. He'd like to say no to the job, to José Antonio, to Inés, his girlfriend, and to the Casual Day stuff. But it's not easy to say no. What started out as a simple event, a weekend in the country, ends up deciding the rest of his life.

Entertaining, well written, well performed. Great Spanish movie
21 January 2011 | by mdelgado-4See all my reviews

I truly enjoyed watching Casual Day. Great acting, great script and good rhythm, which makes it a very nice watch. The story is centered upon a group of people working for a large multinational company who go for a company week-end away. It describes the ambitions, miseries and injustices that affect the workers of the company from many different perspectives. The negative side is that it is maybe excessively pessimistic, at the risk of being bias. However, one can imagine that there are companies where people are treated unfairly, with little humanity and where people feel deeply miserable but nonetheless trapped. On the good side, actors are at their very best and the plot is truly interesting.
