Trivia

'Karcharías' is the general name of the larger human-eating species of shark in modern demotic Greek, unchanged from ancient Greek, or in slang as in the English 'loan shark', a ruthless moneylender but in Greek it is applied without the 'loan' epithet as when applied to a person it is understood to mean a money lender who charges exorbitant interest and often uses rough necks to ensure payment.

It is special!
28 May 2018 | by rodrig58See all my reviews

This is the kind of movie I usually do not like. All the action in a closed frame, only dialogue, right, there are also four crimes, boring. But, the quality of the actors' play, I mean the five job candidates, all very natural, they pick up the film. Plus, Malcolm McDowell, "deadly serious" and very special talented. It is a little slow and predictable, even hard to believe that Keith Caverns (Michael DeLorenzo) can strangle with a tie the giant Mike Drake (Matthew Willig) or that Billie Lewis then kills Keith Caverns with her shoe heel. Except that, everything is like in life, I have seen with my own eyes such characters, in real life, in different working places, capable of anything for a job.
