Labour Equals Freedom

Originally made for Slovenian TV, this wry, low-key comedy personalizes the upheavals caused by globalization with its tale of a machinist (Peter Musevski) downsized after the country joins the European Union. His depression and expanding beer belly drive his breadwinner spouse into the arms of a coworker, but writer-director Damjan Kozole portrays them with such an even-tempered naturalism there's sympathy for all. Musevski brings an earnest quality to the hapless but amiable worker, an average Joe who learns that taking action—however bumbling or desperate—is the first step toward recovery. In Slovenian with subtitles. 68 min.
