Corruption abounds in this stylish, ripped–from–the–headlines story of prisoners released on a day pass to work as killers contracted by high level politicians. The cops must bring them in, never knowing how far the corruption spreads or who they can trust. Selected as part of the Director’s Fortnight at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, ON THE JOB tells the parallel stories of two killers and a pair of cops. With the older prisoner grooming his protege to take his place upon parole, and the younger cop trying to uncover just how deep the corruption in his department runs, the whole system is turned upside down in this gritty crime thriller.
