I Like to Work


Italy, 2004


Anna's life goes wrong when a corporation buys the company where she works as secretary. According to the law, she is entitled to significant compensation should she be fired due to the changes. But as the company spares the compensation money on one hand, but does not need Anna on the other, there is a process of implied and unbearable abusing of her to make her quit. But Anna, sole provider for her daughter Morgana, holds to her position as hard as she can. I Like to Work is a film about the battle of an individual for their rights in an industrialized capitalist society. Differing from other films about similar conflicts with a man as their hero (Modern Times of Chaplin or The Last Laugh of Murnau), in I Like to Work the heroin tries to survive in the work world specifically cruel towards women and single mothers.
