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

  1. The devil is in the degrees. Pineyro and Ferrer have a fine old time teasing the viewer with the ongoing search for the corporate mole.
