Delicado drama que, com seu elenco coeso encabeçado por um Bardem vigoroso e intenso, funciona como um testemunho do impacto psicológico e moral provocado pelo desemprego numa economia em recessão.
| Original Score: 5/5

Moving, often hilarious examination of masculine frustration with a sharply observed script and impressive performances from its cast.

Bottom feeder, out of work adventurers busying themselves with basically anything that will keep the terror of an abyss called the future at bay.

Si Los Lunes al Sol es una película tan humana, tan sensible y tan reveladora es porque hemos visto esos personajes acá nomás, a la vuelta de la esquina.

Will look and feel all too familiar to victims of the jobless recovery, or at least those who can afford to see the movie.

What keeps us involved in this perceptive film is the beautiful acting of its cast ... and the way the movie balances grim reality with bits of fancy that feel oddly perfect.

A small, intimate film that moves viewers with its passion.

September 10, 2003
It has nice little touches, and some solid performances, but in the end nothing is accomplished. It is as though the film itself is unemployed.

The best thing that can be said about this funny, poignant and compassionate film is that watching it is not work.
