The Garage by Catherine van Campen

Garage, The

A film about how people deal with the financial crisis. We encounter the professional and personal stress of the salesman - and the financial considerations of his clients. We see how the car becomes a source of discord between the man (who wants it big with all the trimmings) and the woman (who wants it small, clean and efficient). And we unravel the personal story of a family, highlighting the stark contrast between the ways we assess ‘work' in the Netherlands.
