Iglesia updates the persecution complex and Holocaust allegory of Polanski's The Tenant as a nerd empowerment ritual.

Audience Reviews for La Comunidad (Common Wealth)

Along with "El dia de la bestia" this is De la Iglesia's best work. a mad, bloody film about greedy murderous neighbors. but warning, you may either hate its absurdity or simply die of laughter.

[font=Century Gothic]In "Common Wealth," Julia(Carmen Maura), a temporary real estate agent, is showing a couple a furnished apartment in downtown Madrid where her and her underemployed husband, Ricardo(Jesus Bonilla), have been spending the occasional night to escape their unheated apartment, when water starts leaking in from the apartment above. After the fire department breaks in, a very, very dead body is found in hideous squalor. While going through his papers, Julia finds a map that leads her to a treasure of 300 million pesetas.[/font]

[font=Century Gothic]"Common Wealth" is an entertaining movie with a nasty outlook of human nature(which was reinforced by the rubbernecking on the bus this morning) that owes a lot to "Delicatessen" for its basic setup, if not plot. So, while it is basically predictable, the movie does manage to pull off a couple of surprises in its exciting payoff. That, along with the always delightful Carmen Maura leading the way, does manage to make it quite worthwhile.[/font]

¨La Comunidad(Common Wealth)¨ brings out the darkest side of our human nature, bringing out delicious black comedy, horror and thriller elements without the need to invoke anything supernatural or fantastical.
The pacing of the film is spot on, and the atmosphere and tension is built to great effect. The film is creepy, crazy and builds to real edge of the seat tension. The characters are all wonderful, and the cast give great performances.
