A small incident over two neighbors common wall sparks a conflict which affects the intimacy of the view over the chimney; the protagonist sparks a conflict and with paranoiac obsession destroys everyday life.
"Felicidades" is a great movie, overlooked by its poor merchandising and the unknown nature of the director, which is an important propeller. The movie talks about people lost in a city that vanishes for one day, in Christmas Eve. Some are trying to get to their families, some do not have any. Some are finding them, some are in a rush, everyone is looking for another one.
This choral story goes around presenting extravagances and eccentricities, and funny but road-less characters. The city is dark, but not as dark in "Evil". As dark in lonely, when all lights shut off and you are the only one still awake.
The movie is fantastic, smart and coated by a script flowing on true, pure human feelings. The loneliness that it transmits is impressive. The unreceptive echoes, the subdued lights, the empty roads. It seems that in every character's life, this Sad Side on Christmas will last forever.
