Starring Javier Cámara and Belén Cuesta and boasting five Goya nominations, this delicious comedy about two neighboring couples explores the complexity of modern relationships. The People Upstairs is directed by Cesc Gay and is included in the Carte Blanche: San Sebastian program.
Julio and Ana have been together for over fifteen years. They don’t look at each other or touch each other anymore and daily conflicts have become the norm. This evening, Ana has invited the upstairs neighbors over. Salva and Laura are slightly younger than them and welcomed them with open arms when they moved into the building, but the constant moaning and groaning coming from their apartment has become a source of arguments for Julio and Ana... This evening, the neighbors will become both the instigators and victims of an emotional tsunami, brought on by an unusual and surprising proposal.
