The Man Next Door (El Hombre de al lado)



The Man Next Door, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2010, won the World Cinema Cinematography Award. An upper-middle class architect's perfect existence is ruptured when a neighbor begins to build a new window, ruining the view of his beautiful Le Corbusier designed house and invading his family’s privacy in this hilarious and poignant exploration of class, vanity and the nature of friendship.
