Neighbouring Sounds 2012

Unknown-1

The debut feature from Brazilian writer/director Kleber Mendonça Filho, Neighbouring Sounds is a clever domestic drama that takes place largely in an apartment block in an affluent suburb. Within the walls, a spate of minor crimes lead to a new security system coming into place, with guards becoming parts of the residents’ lives. Bia (Maeve Jinkings) is a young mother who is tormented by the sound of her neighbour’s dog, but does the barking signify imminent danger? Neighbouring Sounds has plenty of ominous foreshadowing, but the pay-off is surprising and effective; by selecting and dissecting a microcosm of Brazilian society, the film nails a few universal truths that resonate internationally.
