Critic Reviews for The Human Resources Manager
If director Eran Riklis's intention is to show the blossoming humanity, so to speak, of a human resources manager, the transformation is much too subtle to work.
Even with incidents involving drunken locals, an underground bunker and a decommissioned tank, the film doesn't build the comic momentum of good intentions hurtling downhill in a strange land.
A cross-cultural shaggy-dog story along the lines of Bill Forsyth's "Local Hero."
Yehoshua and Riklis are sometimes better at setting things up than following through, but the result suggests a novelistic density.
Audience Reviews for The Human Resources Manager
Steering between politics, poignancy and dark humour, this fairly absorbing road movie is also one that proves morally interesting.
The Mission of the Human Resources Manager Whatever This is one of the first modern Israeli films I have yet seen, and it didn't give me a good impression. It lacks so many things, like a moment of touch - but nevertheless it isn't all bad, its watchable, and at times funny. This is a black-humor comedy/tragedy about a human resource manager who goes on a mission to bring back the body of a Romanian women who was murdered in Jerusalem. Within his journey he starts seeing the world as a different place. A very simple movie, aesthetically pleasing, but don't be duped by the story line because even though it may seem rather interesting it is not. It is very simple, the dialogue is at times boring, and by the end it doesn't leave you thinking about anything. Therefore, I don't fully recommend this movie,. The acting is fantastic but the overall story is a failure. So I am undicided about how I truly feel about this movie, I don't recommend it, but I won't judge you if you wanna go watch it. The Human Resource Manager: "I am coming home"
Amusing dramedy. I like road trip films, and this is the type where very different people learn life lessons together, pull together for a common cause, all that stuff.
