Movie Info

Heated office politics boil quickly to the surface as a tobacco-loving employee make a desperate plea for a smoking room in this observant comedy from writer/directors Julio Wallovits and Roger Gual. Working his days away in a Spanish branch of a large U.S.-based company, salary-man Ramirez (Eduard Fernandez) is enraged when a no-smoking ordinance goes into effect, leaving him no place to light up while on the clock. Though his bid for nicotine bliss initially divides employees' loyalties based solely on the subject at hand, petty grievances soon erupt into all-out war concerning twisted office politics. With employees going back on their initial support for the smoking room and paranoia soon giving way to shifting loyalties, it seems that everyone has their own agenda when it comes the how the company is being run. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Smoking Room

Good film about decisions that seem little but can alter relations on many different levels among co-workers. Sort of a commentary about hipocrisy and staying true to your position, wheter you have something or nothing to lose. the low budget and inexperience shows, but the acting and great dialogue make up for the rest.
