Yoonjee and colleagues are suddenly restructured. They are exiled to an old warehouse and begin to receive training sessions. Will Yoonjee be able to return to the company?
The only hope for people in the restructuring list is to be selected as the best trainee in the capacity-building program and get back to work. Only one person gets the chance. Except for those who aren’t inclined to return to work, people desperate for work engage in a fierce battle of wits. Training Session tells the story of people isolated from the labor environment. It goes against any typical approach from previous films with the same subject matter. Basically, it keeps the tone and manner of comedy. The film criticizes the irony that the company, who caused the situation, pulls out of the scene while employees compete against each other. Using fresh details, it depicts personal stories of trainees and ridiculous events between them and the non-regular manager who supervises them. It is brilliant to see how Yoonji and manager Chaeyoung, who hated each other, comes to a certain consensus. Female characters in the film are far from innocent victims but strong, even brazen women. The beauty of this film is in the moments of their conflicts, unity, and sincerity. (LEE Eunsun)
