A small incident over two neighbors common wall sparks a conflict which affects the intimacy of the view over the chimney; the protagonist sparks a conflict and with paranoiac obsession destroys everyday life.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
incrível. hilário, revela arquétipos de hipocrisia social com originalidade e sempre uma surpresa mantendo-nos atentos ao que está se passando. muito bom. dialoguei com o filme (em voz alta) bastante tempo.
I am really fond of argentinian films, and I didn't liked this film. Now, i've talked to some cinephile friends and they all gave great reviews. What is it exactly that you see in this film? I am curious.
Remarkably astute film. Starts off as a comedy of manners and quickly evolves into an uncompromising glance into the mechanics of class and culture. It preceded "O Som ao Redor" in its acid evaluation of the operating procedures of the overprivileged in contemporary South America. By the end, the theorem doesn't hold up and the shots lose their initial strength. I still like it a lot though.
An interesting premise that would have worked better as a short film. Besides the beautiful takes on the amazing Le Corbusier's architecture, there are too many scenes where virtually nothing happens to build the story on.
What I particularly liked about this film was its capability to have mildly experimental moments which don't spoil the narration: I'm thinking especially of the random shots of an apparently non-diegetic labyrinth (when Spregelburd is on msn), or the bizarre finger dance by Aráoz.
I found its ironic humour quite effective.
The characters are very well developped; Spregelburd and Aráoz are terrific actors.
