PEOPLE UPSTAIRS, THE
Una comedia orgásmica. Against the wishes of her tired and grumpy husband Julio (Javier Cámara, NARCOS), Ana (Griselda Siciliani, soon to be seen in Alejandro González Iñárritu's LIMBO) has invited the couple who live in the apartment upstairs down for a Friday night dinner party. A minor argument between Julio and Ana about household expenses lends an undercurrent of tension to their haphazard efforts to play host to Salvo (Alberto San Juan, A GUN IN EACH HAND) and Laura (Belén Cuesta, THE ENDLESS TRENCH). When Julio unleashes what's intended to be a withering comment about the upstairs couple's loud lovemaking, Salvo and Laura's unflappable response, including sharing details about their open relationship and frequent threesomes, escalates the already tense get-together into cringe comedy delirium. The latest clever comedy from Cesc Gay features outstanding ensemble work from the talented quartet of actors. Official Selection, 2020 San Sebastián International Film Festival. DIR/SCR Cesc Gay, from his play "Els Veïns de Dalt"; PROD Marta Esteban. Spain, 2020, color, 82 min. In Spanish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
