Markets, Globalization & Development Review


This is a review of the film My Piece of the Pie (2011) by Cédric Klapisch, which brings together the separate lives of a working class woman and a hedge fund manager in France. The review explores the ways in which the film features emotional labor, shows the social inequalities between a winner and a loser of global economic markets, while also highlighting the reverse inequalities when it comes to skills in the world of emotions.
