Slickly entertaining, considering its rather weighty subject matter, this dark workplace dramedy stars the veteran actor Javier Bardem as the boss of a family-run factory plagued by economic woes, employee foibles and the clashes brought on by Spain’s burgeoning multiculturalism. With a style reminiscent of the Coen brothers’ trademark cinematic sarcasm, León de Aranoa artfully spins a piercingly clever tale (which he also wrote) of bad behavior trying to pass itself off as good.
