About

The Take full movie is released on Mar 18, 2005. Watch The Take online - the English Documentary movie from Canada , which has achieved a worldwide gross of $30,380. The Take is directed by Avi Lewis and created by Naomi Klein with Matilde Adorno and Michel Camadessus.

In suburban Buenos Aires, thirty unemployed auto-parts workers walk into their idle factory, roll out sleeping mats and refuse to leave. All they want is to re-start the silent machines. But this simple act - the take - has the power to turn the globalization debate on its head. Armed only with slingshots and an abiding faith in shop-floor democracy, the workers face off against the bosses, bankers and a whole system that sees their beloved factories as nothing more than scrap metal for sale. With The Take, director Avi Lewis, one of Canada's most outspoken journalists, and writer Naomi Klein, author of the international bestseller No Logo, champion a radical economic manifesto for the 21st century

Rousing as it is, you can't help feeling at times that the filmmakers have reduced a complex situation to a black and white.

An extraordinarily stirring film that should resonate even with the fairly internationally isolated American audience.
