Being Retrenched Stinks !
It's a vicious cycle, that God has set that every once in ten years the economy will simply collapsed; companies fold, people released from their duties aka fired, unemployment rises. Vicious, really vicious.
So imagine yourself, all the while having a job, and not minding that maybe one day the job you're having will ceased. Then, out of the blue, you were kicked out the front door and being told not to bother to come back tomorrow.
And imagine that you do not have any 'other skills' to fall back upon. You do not possess a certificate, you do not that Excel is actually a proprietary software made by Microsoft and not a soft drink, and that all the work experience you have do not mean a thing to the job you are applying for.
Enter the people who have been working for their whole lives only to learn that they no longer have the job. So they went to job interviews only to be told that they do not have what it takes to be chosen as employees.
This is what the whole film is about. About a chef who loses his café. About a girl who found out that her times spent in Bangladesh worth nothing in the eyes of the interviewees, as of an engineer who found out that he is either too old or too young to fit into any jobs.
Overall, this film is okay, not in a laugh-out-loud way, but rather it takes a jab at the current economic situations happening throughout the world. People losing jobs and seeking desperately new jobs to have enough to pay for the bills and food to fill their stomachs.
I didn't rate this because I do not think any rating is justifiable as I do not want to be seen as recommending this film if I rate it a ten, and to rate it a one do not mean that thing film is not worth a watch.
