A watchable slice of social realism for Argentina. THE BOSS, ANATOMY OF A CRIME tells the story of a lowly butcher's apprentice and the ways in which his boss goes out of his way to make his life hell. It's a dark tale of bullying and despair, based on a true story, and one which strives for the realistic at all times over the dramatic or embellished.
The director has some fun with the chronology of his movie, presenting events in flashback format while modern legal scenes explore the aftermath of the titular crime. The low-key acting is of a high standard and the production values for what is clearly a low budget tale are exemplary. Fans of this genre will enjoy it.
