Life's meaning
10 April 2014 | by abcvisionSee all my reviews

The movie Workers centers on those hidden in the shadows. Rafael works in a large plant as a janitor and discovers that he has no right for a pension. Lidia patron dies and leaves the estate to her dog, making her rethink her role in this job. This movie captures the spirit of those that play small parts in a complex world but deserve the same opportunities as others. Its context is important in the intertwine dynamic that exist today. However, what the seek are the basic truths that all humans crave. The movie is not totally in a serious tone, there are some funny moments. There are also some unexpected moments and points to revenge is not always a bad thing In Spanish, the scenes are beautifully filmed and convey a message of hope and discovering your own path. I sat Workers as part of the Atlanta Film Festival.
