A Bunuelesque romp that tells the story of two families, the Xs and Ys, who move to a new neighborhood and buy two identical houses opposite from each other. The men are middle age professionals and their wives are housewives without children and with firmly fixed habits. Slowly they find out how similar they are; slowly they come to hate each other. The more they strive to be different and the more they fail, the stronger grows their malice and lust to harm each other. A tragic comedy of the absurd.  English subtitles.
