The People Upstairs

Hitting a brick wall in their 15-year-long relationship, a couple invites the younger and livelier couple living upstairs for a get-together - one that diverts into unexpected places - in this Spanish comedy.

Julio and Ana have been together for more than fifteen years. They have become a couple who no longer look at nor touch one another, and who have made daily fighting the essence of their relationship. This evening, Ana has invited their upstairs neighbors to come round, Salva and Laura, a couple younger than them, pleasant and friendly, but whose noises are now an annoyance for Julio and Ana... or perhaps a stimulus? The upstairs neighbors will make them an unusual and surprising proposal which will turn the evening into an exaggerated and cathartic experience for all four.

An entertaining and engaging comedy that nit-picks at unwritten social etiquettes.

A smart, genuinely funny and tightly written comedy of - very bad - manners.
