Toiling silently in an everyday Barcelona apartment building, doorman César (a wonderful Luis Tosar) harbours a dark secret: his sole desire in life is to make others unhappy. When he sets his sights on Clara (Marta Etura), a vivacious new tenant with a cheerful disposition, his sick need blossoms into a full-fledged obsession.
With unrestricted access to apartments in his building, César embarks on a series of private and physical violations against Clara. His fascination with tormenting her soon crosses the line into madness.
Acclaimed Spanish director Jaume Balagueró, co-creator of [REC] and [REC]², delves into the perverse fantasies of a man on the brink, and delivers nonstop thrills right up to the shocking conclusion.

This web site is very useful, but the hard copy of the ByTowne guide still has its merits. People rely on it and love it. Plus, its calendar pages can be pulled out and posted on your fridge door, something that we still can't achieve with the web site.
