Dear Mother, I'm All Right

Time Out says

If Tout va Bien was a movie about industrial relations for a middle class audience, then this is the equivalent movie for workers themselves. Shot with guileless simplicity, it analyses the situation of workers at a West Berlin factory where cutbacks are proposed; a strike is called, but it proves difficult to maintain solidarity. It's seen mainly from the point of view of one 'average' employee, but there are also glimpses of management machinations. The links between general economic policies and such facts of life as workers' problems with accommodation are made absolutely explicit. The approach has the immediacy of a good comic strip, naive in the best, non-patronising sense. It looks exemplary.
