Sleep Tight

Synopsis: Apartment concierge Cesar (Luis Tosar) is a miserable person who believes he was born without the ability to be happy. As a result, he decides his mission is to make life hell for everyone around him. A majority of the tenants are easy to agitate, but Clara (Marta Etura) proves to be harder than the most. So Cesar goes to creepy extremes to make this young woman mentally break down. Things get even more complicated in this twisted relationship when her boyfriend, Marcos (Alberto San Juan), shows up.

6am and we're still here

answering your calls.

Sharing your problems, llstenlng...

... my chlldren,

my motivation to go to work.

Just to get up In the mornlng.

I don't really know where to start...

... now they're just Ignoring me.

They won't answer my calls.

It makes me so sad...

... I feel llke I'm not needed at home,

as If I'm not there...

... 'cause there's

always a way to be happy

and we just have to find lt.

SLEEP TIGH:

Happy.

That's exactly my problem.

That I can't be happy.

I never have been.

Not even when good things

happen to me.

You can't imagine what it means

to wake up every day

with no motivation.

The effort it takes me

to find a reason.

Just one.

Not to let it all go to Hell.

And believe me

I give it my best shot.

My very best.

Every day of my life.

MONDAY:

... we have time for one last call...

We're late.

That's enough!

Enough messing around!

Stop playing with your bag!

Got your lunch?

You got it?

Come on, quick.

Ursula!

What's up?

Nothing.

I was just saying good morning.

Morning.

Come on, let's go.

Good morning.

...I was thinking

we could use gauze.

Yeah and bring me the catalogues.

Okay, we'll finish them

in leather...

Okay, we'll be in touch. Ciao.

Morning, Csar!

Miss Clara. Everything all right?

Everything's great.

Hello, Vernica!

Well, that's us for today.

You're up earlier every morning.

What choice do I have? Poor Roco...

She can't hold it long... you know.

We're off upstairs.

What time is it?

I'm off.

Csar!

I think my sink's blocked.

Could you take a look?

I'll stop by this afternoon.

Thanks! Ciao.

Bye.

Morning.

Morning, Csar.

Morning.

Morning.

Hi, Mum.

How you feeling?

So, what have I got

to tell you today?

The truth is I haven't got

much news.

The neighbours

are behaving themselves.

Most of them.

My only worry is Clara.

I'm trying my best.

But I think it's going to be

tougher than I thought.

But I don't want you worrying.

I'll think of something.

Afternoon.

Do you know what time it is?

Obviously not.

It's 4:
26 pm.

Not bad...

You've beaten

your own record.

Sorry, I was visiting my Mother...

Today it's your mother's fault.

Yesterday it was the radio's fault

for putting you to sleep.

Look, you have hours to keep.

And if it's 4, it's 4.

Csar, what a stroke of luck!

We've got a problem.

Well, I'm sure we'll solve it.

Last warning, eh?

What's the problem?

This afternoon my friend's

celebrating her birthday.

And at the bingo hall... I ask you!

That's good, isn't it?

It's about my little ones...

I feel awful leaving them alone.

Don't worry...

I'll take care of them.

Really?

It's no trouble.

You just have to give them dinner.

But remember,

Roco has her own special food.

The yellow container,

not more than two measures.

That's it. If not, the poor girl

gets indigestion.

Then she gets such

terrible diarrhoea...

I know. Don't worry.

Oh, and I left you a piece

of pie in the kitchen.

I made it myself. Potato.

Delicious!

I'd best be off

or I won't get a seat!

Enjoy yourself!

Same to you!

Why can't we ask Dad?

As if we'd ask him!

We'll go hand in hand to ask him!

Evening.

How was your day?

Uff... Crazy!

Neighbours going out, mail,

neighbours coming in.

I thought I was going crazy.

Okay. You can relax.

It's my turn to clean

up their posh sh*t.

And their dogs?

And don't I do anything?

You... Just keep quiet.

The kid's right. He cleans too.

Their posh sh*t.

Each to his own, no?

So, what about you?

All day sitting there,

doing nothing.

Well, I wouldn't swap this

for anything.

Yeah, I bet.

Look who's talking.

Bet you'd love to be in his shoes.

Oh yeah, that's my dream...

F***, Mum!

Don't give me lip!

Here, the office keys.

Afterwards,

leave them in the cupboard.

Yeah, like always.

Here. Up you go.

Potato.

Delicious.

Hi Clara.

So you don't like bugs,

eh Clara?

TUESDAY:

At it again?

What the hell are you doing?

What about you, d*ckhead?

That's the question.

I gave you what you asked for.

Yeah.

But you didn't expect that 60 shitty

euros would keep me quiet forever.

Or do you think I'm stupid?

What do you want?

An adult movie.

What?

You heard me.

Ok.

Now get to bed.

Morning.

Morning, dear.

You haven't got Roco today.

No.

The poor thing isn't well.

I don't know.

She must have eaten something.

She's got awful diarrhoea.

And with her age, I'm scared that...

You should start getting used to the idea.

Even though it's painful.

Yes.

And how was bingo?

I DREAMT ABOUT YOU AGAIN LAST NIGHT.

YOU CAN BE SUCH A WHORE...

ERASE ALL:

Excuse me.

Ah...

Csar.

Yes, Csar.

What?

Yesterday I spoke to the estate agency.

And they want to know

how the cleaning woman is doing.

Whether you're satisfied.

It seems some of the neighbours

have complained.

I haven't noticed,

to be honest.

But I can ask.

If it's no bother, please.

I need an answer soon.

Yeah, I'll ask.

Thanks... and sorry.

Morning.

Morning Miss Clara.

Sleep well?

You seem tired...

Yes, you're right.

Lately I wake up feeling awful.

And it isn't lack of sleep.

Csar, don't call me Miss...

It feels strange.

I'd prefer to.

It helps me in my work.

As you wish.

Late today, aren't you?

What's the time?

Oh no! And I think

I've lost my watch.

Was it valuable?

For me it was.

It was my mother's...

Oh, I stopped by your apartment...

You do have a blockage.
