    I usually find it hard to follow foriegn movies , because you can't take your eyes off the screen without missing some of the dialougue, or I find it hard to keep up of with the subtitles when they talk fast. So, I generally get fustrated with the movie all together, this was not the case for Mondays in the Sun.

So, I generally get fustrated with the movie all together, this was not the case for Mondays in the Sun. The movie follows the lives of six friends after they were laid off from their jobs. The acting was tremendous, and an exceptional performance was given buy Javier Barden. Barden plays Santa a rebelous man full of pride, who refuses to submit to the company policy. The film is a must for the average man the worker, and even though, I lack a certain blind patriotism that many display today, I found this foriegn movie something that the american worker can relate to.

  1. The story's rambling, meandering style is just right for the melancholy subject being explored, and all the acting is excellent.

    Fortunately, no one seems to have clued Bardem in on the game plan, and the fierceness and complexity he brings to his role nearly saves Mondays In The Sun.

    The tired and washed-out Spanish town is a fitting backdrop for these men - a place where life moves on around them at an uninspiring pace.
