Cannes 2013 – Critics Week – Grand Jury Prize Special Mention
Sergio, Ruben and Alicia are caretakers of a countryside estate in Tucumán, a northern province in Argentina. When the estate owners are absent, the sneaky workers secretly occupy the house and emulate the owners’ lifestyle. They sleep in comfortable beds, watch movies on a big screen TV and eat food that they could never afford.
When the owners of the estate, Pía and her sister Lourdes, show up unexpectedly for the weekend with their husbands, Manuel and Gabriel, the workers are left out to their own humble abode and daily duties. But it’s difficult to stay away from the comfort to which they have grown accustomed.
The owners have secrets of their own, and soon everyone is wondering who will end up running the house…
A quirky satire on modern class struggle from debut directors Agustin Toscano & Ezequiel Radusky.
