Though it lacks a focus or greater artistic vision, Thomas Balmès' no-frills documentary offers Westerners a valuable glimpse into the sweatshops of the new China.
Ethical capitalism may sound like an oxymoron to some, but that concept is a linchpin of this cursory, irritatingly facile look at the human cost of globalization.
Unintentionally funny is still funny, and the documentary A Decent Factory, which opens with a misspelled quotation from Milton Friedman, had me giggling.
Thomas Balmés's fly-on-the-wall documentary uses your cell phone charger as a case study in how multibillion-dollar multinationals are dealing with multihorrible working conditions in the overseas plants run by their subcontractors.
Spotlights what definitely does not come with your Nokia cell phone: who assembled all those microscopic parts, in what country, and whether or not they were paid minimum wage.
This film exposes a more insidious kind of exploitation, one far more difficult to detect.
What follows during an assembly plant inspection is a more specific exposé on outsourcing in the developing world than last year's fact-filled The Corporation.
