El pisito / 小さいアパート (1959)





From Marco Ferreri.

During the Spain of the 50s, the society was still facing really hard times. Low salaries didn’t permit most people to access decent housing.

In El Pisito, we learn the story of Rodolfo and Petrita who, after 12 years of dating, cannot get married yet. Rodolfo lives in an old lady’s house about to die, hoping that after she dies he and Petrita can have the apartment for themselves.

When they realize that’s going to be impossible, he decides to marry the old lady to be able to remain there once she dies.
