The Man Next Door (2009): review: 7.5/10

A precious furniture designer lives with his wife and child in a Corbusier house: his idyll is destroyed when his neighbour constructs a window in his wall looking onto their house.

With much wit, the film describes the vacuity of the designer, his vanity, casual dishonesty and snobbery. However the film is somehow incomplete, the various narrative threads not closed with total eficiency. I am not sure if this is deliberate or not.
