      Preamble for you foreign viewers: this movie is about the so called"permatemps"; that's temporary workers who effectively do the job of apermanent worker, but can be fired anytime and have no benefits at all.In the last 5-6 years in Italy, temporary job laws were introduced andhad a devastating effect on society, especially on younger generations.

      Finally a movie with heart about temporary workers, very well writtenand directed. You will be taken through the odyssey of Marta, a younggraduate in philosophy who cannot find any job related to her studies,so to keep herself alive, she has to take a temporary job as atelephone-marketer.

      While in the process of descending this inferno, she will get in touchwith a wide spectrum of persons and situations, that will keep youinterested in the story.

      The writer/director does a very good job in building the story, youwill really care for all the characters, even the two villains, who bythe end of the movie show their human side.

      My only remark to the script is when Marta engages in a totallygratuitous sex act that is very clichè, and the fact that the storydoes not really tackle with all the problems that a temporary workerhas to face in Italy, mainly the inability to get any mortgage to buy ahouse, or the mandatory periods of time when the worker is left homewithout pay and then hired again later through a different mediatingagency, which is the standard workaround to avoid the rather feeblerestrictions imposed by the law.

      Overall, this is a great movie that I recommend, it is an universalstory about the de-humanization of people, that every viewer in thewestern world will feel connected to. Yet it still manages to be funnyat times and rather moving.

      Here's the pragmatic approach that parents tell their children here -study the sciences because that will provide you a job. For Marta(Isabella Ragonese), even a top degree with honours in Philosophy failsto land her a permanent job, drawing some sharp contrast against peerswho have dropped out of college, but steadily climbing the careerladder. The film has intent to examine the plight ofpermanent-temporary workers, you know, those who are under temporarycontracts, but have to perform tasks and take on responsibilities justas how a regular staff would, but minus the staff perks.

      I suppose companies take this approach with an eye wary on their bottomline, and sees this staffing strategy as something that's costeffective, virtually eliminating benefits from the payroll. The filmmight have been effective, with the introduction of unionist Giorgio(Valeno Mastandrea) who tries to understand the plight and conditionsin the fictitious company Multiple (manufacturing who knows whatproduct), but somehow lost its mission objectives midway because of acomplication in matters of the heart, thereby relegating its ownsubplot.

      This film is about the surreal journey of Marta as she tries her bestto seek out a job, believing that her academic qualifications wouldopen door. Contrary to her beliefs of course, Fate comes into play tointroduce her to a single mom Sonia (Micaela Romazzotti) who works as atele-marketer for Multiple, and recruits her into this really strangecompany with a very wide male-female division of the sexes, andfeel-good ra-ra practices such as singing motivational songs at thestart of each shift, and the receiving of cosmetic, encouraging SMSesin the morning everyday.

      In other words, they operate much like a cult group, where performersget rewarded with dubious prizes, and laggards in the company getshipped out unceremoniously, with little dignity. Such is the sweatshop that Marta finds herself in, if not for her intellectual abilityin internalizing the process in double quick time, and innovating inher job so as to perform with moderate inputs. For those who haveworked in companies, or amongst peers who require you to jump, sing,shout, dance out loud in celebration of your employment or to serve asa mental prep booster before you commence each day, this film woulddefinitely ring a bell.

      And while the narrative might seem all over the place, it is preciselyhow director Paolo Virzi coaxes a coherent and at times zany story outof the multiple events, and myriad of characters. There's Daniela(Sabrina Ferilli) the floor supervisor who's a control freak, andharbours the hots for CEO Claudio (Massimo Ghini) who on the surface isthe typical all- caring boss with a finger on the company's pulse. Thenthere's the romantic knot that Marta inadvertently gets herself into,and fellow sales partner Lucio 2 (Elio Germano) who preps himselfalmost all the time to think that he's the best of the best.

      Throw in plenty of song and dance, self-reflection moments, gratuitoussex and nudity, changing relationships, and you have a film that triestoo hard to cover a wide spectrum of ideas, but end up missing thebullseye more often than not. The film has its moments, but nothing toomemorable besides those song and dance numbers that make the Beach Boysand some folk songs hip again.
