Laid off from the local shipyard, six men spend their days at the town bar, where they discuss their current state. Gruff puts up a tough front. The morose José openly worries about his wife, whom he fears might leave him. Amador, the oldest of the bunch, keeps reassuring everyone that his wife will be back any day now from her trip. Meanwhile, Lino refuses to give up hope of employment, going to interview after interview for jobs being offered to applicants half his age. Presiding over the glum bunch is Rico, the bar owner and the men's co-worker from their shipyard days.

This film about how 6 laid-off workers spent their time (mostly in a bar) is a human drama exploring the dire situation of being unemployed, and how each dealt with their problems. Bardem's acting was top-notch as usual, but my problem is the character he played is not particularly likeable by my measure. Hence my enjoyment of the film was discounted. Otherwise, it is great contemporary Spanish cinema.
