Eight people have applied for a job with a powerful company, and they, from all the others that applied, have reached the final stage. They're led to a room where they're to be given an exam which will decide who is given the job. They are told: "There is one question before you, and one answer is required." But what is the question? They try many things to discover what it is they're supposed to do, and eventually the situation degrades into violence.
The movie isn't bad, but it was very predictable. From the very beginning, I predicted that the question they had to answer would be "Any questions?", which was the only question asked of them. I also predicted, immediately, that the clock would lie to them about when the test was over--it was clearly hinted at when one of the examinees set his watch when the clock started. These two things, which form pretty much the whole of the film's resolution, I guessed within minutes of the film's starting--as early as it was possible to guess them. The rest of the film was not bad, but there wasn't any big twist--it was even obvious that the crazy man who was disqualified from the exam was more than he seemed.
Not bad, but not worth watching a second time, I think.
