THE PEOPLE UPSTAIRS
NOMINATED: SAN SEBASTIAN FILM FESTIVAL
This hilarious story from Spain follows two couples, who come together for an evening filled with shocking revelations, awkward moments and bickering.
This hilarious story takes place in a chic, bijou flat where music teacher Julio (a brilliant Javier Cámara, The Young Pope; The New Pope) comes home to find that his wife of 15 years, Ana, has invited their new neighbours to dinner. He’s overloaded with work, so frankly irritated, plus, he finds the neighbours’ nocturnal activities too loud for his liking. Ana thinks he’s jealous. Julio thinks she’s a pushover. So, while Ana seeks to create a warm cordial evening, Julio threatens to call them out, no matter how awkward things get. Full of witty comebacks and priceless moments, multiple award-winning director Cesc Grey (Truman, Krámpack) has created a comical study of colourful characters, full of pettiness and neuroses; it’s a perfect portrayal of how to sour any social relation.
