Comedy, Drama Spain 2021
1 hr 56 mins Subtitles

The Básculas Blanco factory wall isemblazoned with the words ‘Effort, Balance, Fidelity,’ and they could be regarded as a wry comment on what goes on between the walls. There’s lot of effort but very little balance and fidelity. The business specialises in the manufacture of industrial scales; it is a family-owned company passed down from the founding father to his son, Julio Blanco, and it’s about to be visited by a local committee to determine if it will take out the top award for excellence in business. It’s an honour that Blanco is determined to win at any cost. Things start to go awry, however, when a series of events combine to chip away at the boss’s veneer of dignified calm. Winner of 7 Awards at the Spanish Cinema Writers Circle
