Well-off designer's weird neighbour decides to build a window to catch some sunlight - the problem is that it faces the architect's own window. Tensions rise as the architect's inability to deal with his erratic neighbour and his own demanding wife becomes apparent. Disquieting, multi-layered analogy of modern society's social divide is entertaining, but has been pitched as a comedy even though it's mostly devoid of laughs, and has an ending that feels random after the gradual buildup that was mad before it. Also, directors Cohn and Duprat overindulge on long running shots where nothing seems to happen a little too often. Still, for all it's shortcomings we have some compensation; Araoz stands out as the often menacing neighbour. and Spregelburg is good at transmitting the painful awkwardness of the situation.

Tense, funny and surprising, El Hombre de al Lado it's a vision of the different social class, they mistakes, how this two worlds collide and an intense mental debate about the obstacle that divide this society. Fresh.

Interessante, mas um pouco monótono.

thought provoking film about communication, class barriers and discovering how sometimes the very thing that we fear is what will benefit us most.

Some tense interplay that feeds on our fear of strangers. You never really know until the conclusion who is the worse neighbor. Wanders a bit much on the way to that conclusion, though

Otra muestra de la buena salud del cine argentino, con un Daniel Araoz monumental.

me gusto mucho. muy interesante como se desenvuelve cada personaje y como la historia se va tensando lentamente a partir de un hecho particular.

Leonardo, bem sucedido desenhista industrial, é acordado um dia em casa com um terrível barulho de obra. Em choque, constata que seu vizinho Victor está abrindo um buraco na parede para construir uma janela bem de frente à sua casa. Leonardo protesta utilizando todos os argumentos possíveis para demovê-lo. Mas os modos extremamente amistosos de Victor, que diz apenas querer mais raios de sol, o irritam de tal forma que ele torna-se obcecado com a intrusão e começa a negligenciar trabalho, família e tranquilidade.

Artistic. Excellent vision of division of classes, the way we see ourselves only according to how others see us. The main character shows his true colors in "adversity" and has no way of handling a simple issue because this issue is so foreign to him. Great film.

Muito bom, mas esperava-se um pouco mais em se tratando de cinema argentino...

O HOMEM AO LADO (Dir: Mariano Cohn, Gastón Duprat, 2009) A partir de um acontecimento simples, uma janela, o filme se desenrola e nos faz refletir sobre a intolerância, a superficialidade da burguesia e a convivência social nas cidades.

Argentina, de una fotografía extremadamente cuidada, pero interesante. Presentando las situaciones de un conflicto entre dos vecinos, esta peli nos da una bofetada, porque al final nos damos cuenta que tambien nosotros terminamos juzgando por las apariencias, es una trampa. El vecino educado y exitoso resulta ser un ser sin escrupulos, sin valores, sin coraje...No todo lo que brilla es oro.. Interesante la historia de la casa y fijense en todos los detalles, incluso en las franelas de la senora de servicio, todas pertenecieron al arquitecto exitoso...no esta de mas verla y apoyar al cine latinoamericano..
