Mondays in the Sun | 2003 | R | - 4.3.8

Spanish film about a group of dock workers living in industrial north Spain who are left unemployed when the dockyard is shut down. They end up spending part of each day drinking at a bar and talking, while each man is struggling with issues of personal dignity and self-worth. With Javier Bardem, Luis Tosar, Jose Angel Egido, Jose Angel Egid and Nieve De Medina. Directed by Fernando León de Aranoa. In Spanish with English subtitles. [1:55]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A man kisses a woman's neck and caresses her clothed breast, a man kisses a woman's cheeks, and a man and a woman hug. A woman puts on her bra as a man watches from bed (we see her bare back and he is wearing underwear and a T-shirt). A man gets into bed with his wife (she's sleeping). A woman's top opens and reveals cleavage. A woman in a bra applies deodorant in a few scenes. Women on a television wear mini-skirts and one wears a bikini. There is flirtation and the suggestion that there may be a sexual relationship between a man and a teenage girl.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man lies dead on a ledge over a doorway (he apparently jumped) and we see him again in a coffin. During a protest people are hit with sticks, tear gas canisters are launched into a crowd, and men line tires up along a road and set them on fire. A man and a woman argue and a man yells at another man. We see people cleaning fish in a canning plant. A man throws a rock breaking a street lamp, and a man breaks a glass pane with his elbow. A woman spits in fish that she has cleaned in a plant. An apartment is filthy, with garbage in bags all over.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
