Description: A woman is forced to stand up for herself and her co-workers in order to restore respect to the workplace in this drama. Anna (Nicoletta Braschi) works in the sales department of a large manufacturing concern; she's a single mother, often finding it difficult to meet the demands of her job and still have enough time to spend with her young daughter (Camille Dugay Comencini) and elderly father (Impero Bartoli). When a powerful multinational corporation buys the company, Anna notices a subtle but troubling shift in the way the firm does business. Like many of her co-workers, Anna finds herself being manipulated in small but significant ways, and she's soon shifted from her longtime job into a new and unfamiliar position working for a new boss (Stefano Colace) who does little to disguise his lack of respect for her. Anna finds her responsibilities increasing and her work days getting longer, adding to her stress both at work and at home, and when she's forced to time how long it takes loading dock workers to empty a truck (much to their annoyance), she decides its high time the employees stand up to their new employers. Mi Piace Lavorare (mobbing) was inspired, in part, by a true story; real-life labor activist Assunta Cestaro appears in a supporting role. Mobbing is a slang expression used in Italy for harassment in the workplace.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
