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.
When I read the plot of the movie I thought it had good potential so I gave it a go. Unfortunately I was a little disappointed by it because I found it not funny as I expected it. There are few good scenes like when Hernan finds out about the pastry machines inside his house, used by the parents of his girlfriend to continue their business, who moved in because homeless. The movie is more bitter than sweet, showing the hardship of life and everyday tough situations who many people have to deal with. I must say that it's a good portrait of a country like Argentina, which had a difficult economic problems in its recent past, but besides this I can't find any strengths of the movie.
