Pablo De Vita La Nación (Argentina) Manuel Nieto Zas soundly handles the story's visual resources. [Full review in Spanish] Jan 13, 2022 Full Review Diego Batlle Otroscines.com The most ambitious, risky and accomplished of [Manuel Nieto Zas 's] three feature films. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 4/5 Jan 11, 2022 Full Review Juan Pablo Russo EscribiendoCine A suggestive film, full of looks and gestures that articulate a story marked by a naturalistic staging. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 9/10 Dec 7, 2021 Full Review Andrew Stover Film Threat While the sluggish pace and unspoken conflict between the two men often fail to engage, The Employer and the Employee is fueled by modestly stirring performances and Manolo Nieto's layered screenplay. Rated: 8/10 Jul 14, 2021 Full Review Nicholas Bell IONCINEMA.com The Employer and the Employee offers an upsetting portrait of reality, but coldly denies any semblance of comfort or catharsis. Rated: 2.5/5 Jul 14, 2021 Full Review Demetrios Matheou Screen International This is a slow-burn drama whose lack of incident and evident heroes and villains makes all the more surprising its powerful hold on the attention.
