Why watch this film?
This is a great tragicomedy, quite sarcastic. The script discusses power, work, human relationships, submission, infidelity, dignity, injustice, and balance, all in a very cohesive and intelligent way. In the story, the owner of a company tries to solve all the possible problems of the place before the arrival of a committee that will make a visit to see if the establishment deserves an award. With an excellent performance by Javier Bardem, 'El Buen Patrón' was written and very well directed by Fernando León de Aranoa ('Escobar: A Traição'). It is worth noting that Aranoa and Bardem have worked together before and, once again, we have proof that they make an excellent pair.
