“An amusing, accomplished debut on its own modest terms, Next Door works best as tart meta comedy, becoming increasingly cramped in scope and setting as it spirals into an obsessive revenge thriller.”~Reporter David Rooney, The Hollywood

Aroview: A dark and witty German comedy exploring gentrification and social inequality in Berlin, marking the directorial debut of accomplished actor Daniel Bruhl.

Bruhl gives a self-deprecating performance as a famous actor living extravagantly in Berlin's hip Prenzlauer Berg district. His life takes an unexpectedly turn when he encounters his neighbour for the first time, a middle-aged man whose life has suffered from the gentrification of what was once East Berlin. A confident and highly entertaining celebrity self-satire with more than a few surprises up its sleeve.
