This film tells the hilarious story of four old friends who, driving back from a failed skiing trip, encounter a strange and enormous rock. The men's frivolous attempt to dislodge the rock gradually disintegrates into a tale of betrayal, defeat and renew

Format: DVD
"Men at Work" is a film from Iran that focuses on four friends. While travelling in a mountainous region within driving distance of Tehran, they stop for one of the group to relieve his bladder. A striking stone rock oddly sticks out by the side of the road. The men's imaginations are captured by the rock; and they assume the mission of trying to push it over and down the cliff. The stone will not budge. In the course of the afternoon, a number of other people drop by. An old man whose donkey is purchased to help in the effort reluctantly sells his animal. Two women that the men know arrive; and we learn part of the social history of the friends. Several groups on a ski trip join the effort, eventually tying a winch and metal rope to their SUV and trying to pull it over. The metal cable snaps and injures one of their crew. One friend stubbornly refuses to leave, even to get his friend medical attention. The film ends with three driving away & coming back to give their friend his coat & hot coffee. This is an open-ended film. One wonders why they try so hard to push over a rock on a mountain road in the middle of nowhere. It's part road picture, part male bonding picture. In the end, not much happens. The film is more of a snapshot of a strange day in the lives of these characters. Director Mani Haghighi makes a decidedly non-political film about a group of friends.

The short film on the disc is "Hold Up" about a woman who persuades her fiancee to hold up a convenience store. Director Madelein Olnek provides good pacing on this quick 6-minute short film. An unusual reversal during the robbery occurs that ties the film together.

The Iranian mountain scenery in "Men at Work" is exceptional.

We picked this movie because it looked lonely and unwatched on Amazon Instant Watch. As it turns out, we rather wish we had left it alone.

* Odd. Potentially psychological but as movies go, rather plotless.

* Somewhat slow-moving. It does progress from point to point but we had to skip about the middle 30 minutes to make it tolerable.

* If you don't need a story and want a movie that concentrates on personal connections then this might be for you.

PS: I hope my review was helpful. If it was not, then please let me know what I left out that you’d want to know. I always aim to improve.

Format: DVD
The central idea that these men find they MUST push a rock over the edge of a cliff speaks volumes about human nature. The characters are also somewhat interesting but there is no great drama in their lives or the story other than finding they cannot move forward in live without pushing a rock they had never seen before over a cliff. The very lack of central drama leads the viewer to philosophical questioning and the subtle storyline does not really seek to interrupt that. I really appreciate it when a film does this, especially when filmed so beautifully.
