"This is a very dark and atmospheric film about culture clashes and the often hidden nature of business politics. The protagonist decides to launch a petition against his company to reverse a decision against smoking in the workplace, after it has been taken over by an American company. There is an anti-american culture undertone which probably reflects concerns that the rest of the world has towards American foreign policy. This film could be seen as an allegory about how America enforces its will on other nations but also how the workplace can become dehumanising and how the neglected feelings of the workers can emerge in a variety of disturbing ways. It is made in a very intimate way with close and handheld camera work which lends the film a claustrophobic quality. This film may not be to everyones taste and is hard to classify but should be sought out by anyone who appreciates films that provide an alternative to the standard hollywood production."
