The Mass of Men
21 July 2017 | by cadence921See all my reviews

An unemployed man of 55 years old, Richard, arrives 3 minutes later for an appointment at the employment office. An adviser, Kate, penalizes Richard for his tardiness.

This short film is a little dark and scary and it includes a shocking scene which I wanted to close my eyes. However, this is a film which shows us the unemployment problem in UK.

The unemployment problem is big problem not only in UK but also in the world. we should think over the problem as our own business.

Violence is not allowed absolutely, but I think that it is a good way to have a tremendous impact on an audience.

This film begins with an image of a surveillance camera. I couldn't understand its meaning at first, but I learned to understand in the end. I think that the beginning of this film is interesting.

I couldn't catch all English, but I could grasp the contents because pictures tell us the situation.
