In this satirical film, Enrique Colina ridicules sloppiness and negligence in daily life in Cuba. The consequences of having a lax attitude during worktime is shown in a humorous way. The ideological ambiguity of this film (does it blame or praise apathy?) is reached thanks to its astonishing editing. We are watching the making of an editing process, with its attempts, its successes and failures. The film itself is like a new Frankenstein.
