Hong Kong, Fiction, 2021, 107′

The satire couldn’t be clearer about Hong Kong’s housing problems, its high prices and the conditions it puts those without means. Hence the “coffin houses” that give its name to this black comedy, which winks at the insufficiency of square meters, as well as at this fictional predicament regarding people who assent to live in haunted houses. Full of exacerbated violence, an anthological film with several stories to tell.
