A GOOD DAY’S WORK

Synopsis

Armin is unemployed for a long time, and he desperately needs a job. His wife Jasmina is pregnant; his son Edin has behavioral problems at school. He has a promising interview for the position of a school caretaker. When his car won’t start on the morning of the interview, he starts walking. Almost in front of his eyes a cyclist is injured in a hit-and-run. Armin calls up the ambulance, police. By the time he finally makes it, the interviews are already over. Andrej bumps into Izet on the school entrance, he is the one that got the job. Before he can reveal his latest failure to Jasmina, another work offer suddenly arrives. His brother-in-law takes him to a slaughterhouse on the outskirts of town, but it soon becomes apparent he doesn’t have the stomach to be a butcher. Incidentally, his caretaker qualifications land him the position of a security guard. Andrej is thrilled. Things are finally going his way. On his first day at work, Andrej stumbles on a scene that leads him to discover workers in the slaughterhouse are stealing. He again decides to do the right thing, and tells the truth, but the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

PRESS

“Writing as well as directing, Turk throws a plethora of other obstacles in Armin’s twisty path, including broken-down cars, lost phones, school meetings, missed obstetrician appointments with his pregnant wife (Maja Zećo) and a bordering-on-desperate lack of finances. Still, the onslaught of dispiriting incidents is never repetitive, outlandish or over-played, to the filmmaker’s considerable credit. There’s a rhythm to the narrative that reflects that of reality, albeit with more downs than ups. That daily life is filled with continual disappointment might not prove the cheeriest message, but it’s never packaged as a statement of grim condemnation either; rather, the film posits that the struggle is worth enduring for the sake of love and family.”

“There is a palpable lack of films that deal with everyday life and everyman in Sarajevo without including the war and/or its consequences. Even with the international team behind it, Good Day’s Work makes for a solid film that represents the city and its people and their struggles well. On top of that, given the short time and the micro budget that it took to make this film, Good Day’s Work deserves a lot of praise and is definitely worth the watch.”
