| A little masterpiece
I saw this film at the Kino! festival at MoMa. I truly enjoyed this little masterpiece about two neighbors and their secret which sends them down a spiral of psychological obsession. Instead of relying on cheap tricks and scares, the narrative unfolds at a very somber tone which gives the film a very natural feel. Each of the characters is carefully crafted and feels real.

Especially the character of Robert could be straight out of a Hitchcock movie. Friendly in the beginning, his role soon takes a turn for the darker when things don't go as he planned and David tries to escape his grip. When forced into a corner this seemingly good neighbor becomes the protagonists worst nightmare. Disturbing images and a great direction complete the picture into a coherent whole. The director skillfully plays with the genre boundaries of drama and thus 'The Good Neighbor' keeps you in your seats from the very first minute to the unbearingly thrilling end.

After watching this film you really start to wonder which one of your own neighbors has a little bit of Robert within them.
