WHY WE LOVE IT

After the internationally acclaimed TV Series FOUR SEASONS IN HAVANA and PATRIA, Felix Viscarret returns to cinema following his Goya awarded debut UNDER THE STARS. With a Spanish stellar cast including Leonor Watling (OXFORD CRIMES, TALK TO HER), Paco León (Netflix hit THE HOUSE OF FLOWERS, KIKI LOVE TO LOVE, next in Nicolas Cage’s THE UNBEARABLE WEIGHT OF MASSIVE TALENT) and Juan Diego Botto (SUICIDE SQUAD) and teaming with best-selling author Juan José Millas, this hypnotic mix between thriller and drama about a man spying on a family from inside a closet until slowly taking over other people’s lives will prove you that a PARASITE-like story can mix with Charlie Kauffman’s type of surrealism.

 

SYNOPSIS

Damian has just been fired after working at the same company for 20 years. Following an angry and violent reaction, he runs away from his boss and hides in the first place he can find: a wardrobe loaded on a van. But the wardrobe, with Damian inside, is then delivered to Lucia and Fede, a couple of his age living with their adolescent daughter, Maria. That same night, a sudden impulse leads Damian to stay with the family and become a mysterious presence, observing and moving around in the shadows.
