Susan est serveuse dans un petit bistrot du Cap. Elle est agréable, patiente et pleine d’esprit avec les clients – goinfres, machos, racistes et bobos de tout poil. Mais une histoire de pourboire va finir par la faire craquer.

Note : « Lazy Susan » est une expression qui veut également dire « table tournante » en anglais.

English

A friendly waitress, Susan, works at an everyday Cape Town restaurant, deftly serving gluttons and wasps, hipsters and high-tippers, racists and lechers. With some effort she maintains both wit and service in the face of obnoxious customers – until a lousy tip gets the better of her.

Susan works a double shift in a restaurant in Cape Town where she serves greedy people, WASPs, hipsters, racists and ladies’ men. Even when she has annoying customers in front of her, with some effort she is able to keep her spirits high and offer good quality service, until she is humiliated by a paltry tip. Everything is shot from the point of view of the « lazy Susan » on the table and mixes dark comedy and social criticism with humour and irony.

IT

Susan fa il doppio turno in un ristorante di Città del Capo che serve golosi, wasp, hipster, razzisti e donnaioli. Anche di fronte a fastidiosi clienti, con qualche sforzo riesce a mantenere alto lo spirito e la qualità del servizio, fino a quando una mancia pidocchiosa la umilia. Tutto girato dal punto di vista di un vassoio girevole sulla tavola, in inglese » lazy susan », il film mescola commedia dark e critica sociale con humour e ironia.
