  • Summary: A mysterious corporation has a vacancy and seven eager businessmen and women are called upon at the same time to be interviewed for the position. They are shown into a room by the firm’s offbeat secretary where they are informed that they shall all partake in a bizarre test known as the Grönholm Method. They are also told that one of the seven applicants is in fact the interviewer, who shall remain anonymous to the other six. Throughout a series of uncanny questions, what-if scenarios and increasingly bizarre tests, the applicants are dismissed one by one. The tension increases as people begin to take matters personally, and things get out of hand as the competition becomes more intense. (Palm Pictures) Expand

    Too clever by half, the plot contrivances deliver flippant satisfactions, and the agile performances keep the twists compelling, if less than credible.

    The movie doesn't trust that an illuminating comedy of pathetic people can be entertaining for long, so it sprinkles some hormones on the proceedings.

    "Quién es el topo?"

    A major corporation holds a group interview for 7 candidates who must determine who among them is the mole
    and an employee of the company. Through computer monitors set up in front of each interviewee they are told to exercise their opinions and decision making skills on who must stay and who must go.
