Javier Bardem has never been better than in his leading role in filmmaker Fernando León de Aranoa’s very black comedy, the good boss. This is a movie that is among the most disturbing I’ve ever seen and that’s simply because it really could happen. Perhaps the events of the film, which take place mostly over the course of a single week, couldn’t happen in as short a time as the film portrays them, but who cares when the plot is so energetic and riveting? ? Bardem should be credited for playing a mostly unlikable character who we find ourselves surprisingly rooting for at times. It’s amazing work from the ever-reliable Bardem.


Bardem plays Blanco, a man in charge of a prestigious company specializing in the manufacture of industrial scales. Blanco eagerly awaits a visit from some high-profile people within his company. Everything should be perfect, but all hell is breaking loose. A divorced man in his late 50s who is fired from the company named José (Oscar de la Fuente) demands his job back and soon sets up shop in front of his old job to protest. White initially looks away, well for the most part anyway.

Another setback is one of the company’s core workers, Miralles (Manolo Soto) is separating from his long time partner, Aurora (Mara Guil) and Miralles is very depressed which is affecting his job performance. Blanco gives him some time off and even tries to pay Miralles one hooker at a time, as he is now becoming more of a liability than an asset. But Miralles is still a bitter cat.

He is one of the interns that sends most of the plot spiraling completely out of control. A young marketing intern named Liliana (an excellent Almudena Amor) joins the company and one day Blanco offers her a ride and she doesn’t take no for an answer. He drops her off at her hotel, for which the company grants her lodging privileges. It is noted that the space he is given from her appears to be too much for one person, suggesting that Blanco may have other intentions for her. He seems interested in her sexually despite being a supposedly happily married man.

This movie focuses mainly on Blanco who surprisingly receives a phone call from Liliana and her friend inviting him to go out with them. Blanco unwisely brings Miralles in, but Blanco still manages to have sex with Liliana. It is not clear if Blanco is to blame for her because Liliana is aggressive, but after the torrid encounter between them, he decides to ignore her. The plot thickens when his wife announces that Liliana is the daughter of a close friend whom Blanco even held in his arms when he was a baby. In a hilarious revelation, Liliana is so obsessed with the company she works for that she has her emblem tattooed on her upper back, but she’s also an excellent worker, which further complicates a situation. already complex.

Things start to get intense with the guy across the street, José, who ends up putting feces on the scale outside the building, which leaves Blanco to ask the poor security guard to clean it up. Jose’s presence will certainly make Blanco’s establishment look bad if he continues to protest outside, so Blanco must deal with him in a way that will make him leave, which is easier said than done.

Bardem’s White is a wonderful creation of the actor. This character says that his employees are like “family”, but that he will do whatever it takes to succeed, even if it means crushing those who cause him trouble. Liliana proves to be a force to be reckoned with and won’t take no for an answer either, though when Blanco makes it clear that he’s no longer interested in her, he takes a plan of revenge and puts it into action. Amor is simply wonderful as Liliana and is the biggest challenge that Blanco must overcome if he wants to impress those who can give the company a more prestigious image that will, of course, increase profits. Played by Amor, Liliana is strong, confident and knows what she wants.

The last scene of the good boss it is perfect. I won’t tell you exactly what happens, but there is a take on Blanco and one of his workers who has sacrificed everything and Blanco stands to reap the most benefits. This sequence conveys the idea that those who give their sweat and blood to a company stand on the sidelines while others get all the credit. That’s not to say that Blanco doesn’t do anything, but a large part of what he does is keep his key workers out of sight for his own personal benefit. The rewards usually go to the top and can be a bit disruptive. Without a doubt, it is food for thought and one of the reasons why this film is so successful. I’m sure he’ll leave you a lot to talk about.

Are there problems with the good boss? Yes, unfortunately. Blanco goes to some extreme measures and it’s hard to believe that all the events of the film can take place in just over a week. But still, this is a movie that does what it sets out to do: make you think and entertain. Bardem is a master of the acting games and presents his best performance to date in a film that will captivate the viewer from start to finish.

Classification: 9/10
