This Argentinian feature is compelling for the way it responds to the ideas of the Swiss architect Le Corbusier: on the one hand, directors Mariano Cohn and Gastón Duprat create a rich mise-en-scene around a multi-tiered Corbusier home in Buenos Aires, but on the other, the story is a biting satire of his admirers. A pompous designer living in the aforementioned home goes ballistic after his eccentric next-door neighbor starts adding a window to his own house that looks directly onto the designer's living room. This dark comedy of manners is basically built around a single joke—that the upper-class architects who promote "open space" aren't much interested in sharing that space with others—but that joke is well told and the cast bustles with charm and energy. In Spanish with subtitles.
