Trivia

While the main characters do travel around the world, the film takes place in a couple of fancy hotels. Technically classifying this as a bottle movie. Which could be a metaphor for their corporate behavior that takes away their humanity and reduces them to sharks looking for blood in the water, with their eyes only on the money and absolutely no interest in what really goes on in the world. As if they've created their own little bubble that they choose to live in. See more »

Grotesque studio theater play with great acting
12 May 2015 | by milanium86See all my reviews

The movie is categorized as drama here, but actually it is a grotesque. It is not meant to be a realistic depiction of business consulting, but exaggerating the characters and the plot. Production value is low, but the movie still works, because it fits to the message. These people are afraid to walk out of the 5 star hotel rooms in the under-developed countries they exploit for their "company" so the outside is just papier-mâché cubicles in the distance "what country is this?" - it doesn't matter. That works well, because the actors are doing an excellent job. I can only judge the German original which has some great lines especially when they speak their bad businesses English translating idioms word by word. Not sure if that can be properly localized. It is still somehow believable although the characters are clearly a caricature. Essentially it is a studio theater adapted for film with some additional effects. You don't need to see everything. Hearing screams and gunshots is enough. The scary image is created in your head. Good entertainment for the thinking man. Probably not for everyone though.
