Reviews

Spanish psychological horror from director Jaume Balagueró. The film follows César (Luis Tosar), the concierge to the residents at a wealthy apartment building. César seems extraordinarily helpful and polite and is consequently adored by the residents, but little do they know that he is in fact a man so incapable of happiness and human feeling that he makes it his goal in life to make others as miserable as he is. He focuses much of his attention on Clara (Martra Etura), a beautiful young woman whose vivacity and spontaneous sense of happiness make her his opposite in almost every way. With his usual blend of underhand tricks, which include sneaking into her apartment to rig unpleasant surprises and even hiding beneath her bed, César begins to unnerve Clara. When her boyfriend Marcos (Alberto San Juan) unexpectedly returns the situation quickly escalates towards a point of no return...

I really enjoyed this thriller. Like many foreign films that make it to DVD release in the UK, it really is worth checking out (as I did via Love Film). It's well plotted, well acted and has believable characters who carry the story and lend it a credibility that will stay in your mind. There's also a black sense of humour behind the plot that again the main players, including a teenage schoolgirl, pull off with aplomb. If you have enjoyed films like the French Tell No-one (Ne le dis a Personne) or Hidden (Cache) this is as good as the first and better than the second. Recommended.

The Co-Director of the first two [REC] films (Jaume Balaguero) presents us with this disturbing psychological horror which mostly takes place in a Barcelona Apartment building.
Cesar (Luis Tosar from 'Cell 211') is the caretaker with a chilling presence.A man who has failed to find happiness in his own life and so 'enjoys' inflicting his pain onto other people.
His attention is mainly focused on Clara (Marta Etura,also from 'Cell 211') the attractive thirtysomething resident with whom he has a friendly chat to every morning before she rushes out to work.
What Clara doesn't realize though is that each night she goes to sleep Cesar is only inches away from her,lying silently beneath her bed.
But this isn't the usual kind of stalking you may have seen in many other films of this type.Cesar feels no love and has no longing for this woman.He doesn't want to be with her for the rest of his life-but he does have a plan.
Unlike his previous outings Balaquero keeps us waiting for the gore to arrive,but when it does it is chillingly and shockingly horrific.
The dramatic conclusion to 'Sleep Tight' has left some viewers a little confused but believe me it does make sense.
I highly recommend this dark thriller from Spain, best to check under your bed afterwards though,just in case....

Now then, we have a real gem on our hands here!

'Sleep Tight' is tense and twisted, funny and frightening and delivers the goods in a major way. Luis Tosar plays Cesar, a very depressed character who lives for making people as unhappy as him.

Tosar is supreme and hats off to Director, Jaume Balaguero who doesn't take the easy route of making Cesar a sterotypical 'baddy', but instead portrays a human (and it must be said witty) side to this most disturbed of men.

The detail of the plot doesn't need to be spelt out as you'll enjoy it all the more; what impressed me most though was the almost unbearable tension in a couple of key scenes. A difficult art, but masterfully executed. Because we know Cesar quite well by this point you find yourself rooting for him in an odd way....sounds crazy I know!

Perfectly paced, just the right level of 'action' and a class ending; I can't find fault with 'Sleep Tight' at all. I had to write this review to award the 5 stars and also for my own benefit; I wouldn't want to risk forgeting a great film like this!

There's so much more to 'Sleep Tight' than I could possibly write in a review; I just hope you find this useful and will be willing to give it a try as a result. Highly recommended.

Highly entertaining film with a cracking story and great suspense. Very different from the boring zombie fests. Twisting and turning with some good surprises along the way. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

'Sleep Tight' (Spanish: 'Mientras Duermes') is a Spanish psychological-horror thriller film that released in 2011 to a fantastic widespread response.

The movie centers around César (Luis Tosar) who is the head concierge in charge of a block of flats. The movie shows how he makes all the residents lives a misery in order to cure his unhappiness, which has been with him since birth.

The film starts in a calm manner indicating that we're in for a generic drama/thriller or something even less. Boy, was I wrong! The film gets creepy, sinister, weird and hits you on the head like a juggernaut. I was compelled with this fascinating cinema. The tension/suspense hits a high with so many twists. Combined with some humor, which oddly works, you're in for a thriller treat.

The feature only works because of Tosar's award-winning, vicious and disturbing performance. He became my favorite Spanish actor after his powerhouse acting in 'Celda 211' (Cell 211), which released in 2009. He does bad things in this movie, I mean really bad things, still you don't want him to get caught. The way he acts with his hypnotic eyes, the audience gets behind him, which shouldn't be the case ethically. In the end, like me, you'll end up being complicit in his crimes. That for me is a proper actor, one who has complete power and control over the audience (or just me). Marta Etura who is the lead actress, is beautiful and a joy to watch as the happy and innocent Clara. Another actor worth a mention is Iris Almeida who enacts the role of Ursula, the cheeky schoolgirl. She's Tosar's nemesis in the film. Their exchanges and mind games are a delightful watch.

The direction by Jaume Balagueró for me was of Hitchcockian style that flourishes.
