It all starts with a sledge hammer opening a hole on the dividing wall between two houses. On one side of the wall lives Leonardo, a designer who lives in a luminous house with glass walls. The man next door is the used cars salesman Victor, a dark man living in a dark house. Victor insists on opening a window on the divider wall and Leonardo insists on protecting his privacy. Tension increases and the problem becomes more and more irresolvable. The Man Next Door is directed by the duo Mariano Cohn and Gastón Duprat of last year’s acclaimed comedy The Distinguished Citizen.
