Sano kiitos ja tanssi / Say Yes and Dance

FI ©  2012 Helsinki-Filmi. P: Miia Havisto. D+SC: Antti Heikki Pesonen. DP: Aarne Tapola. ED: Hanna Kuirinlahti. C: Mikko Kouki (the employer), Ville Tiihonen (the job applicant). 6 min. Distributed by Pirkanmaan Elokuvakeskus with English subtitles. 2K DCP viewed at Kinopalatsi 10, Helsinki, 23 Nov 2012. 

The employment desk at a slaughterhouse. A job applicant (Ville Tiihonen) with a derelict appearance meets a severe recruiter (Mikko Kouki) who tries to be patient, correct and polite. The tables turn, the bum takes command and starts to interrogate the recruiter. The men end up dancing together ("tanssi ennen kuin päivät kuluu loppuun" / "dance before the days are numbered").

A performance-driven movie. The direction of the performances is fine.
