Pedro, a handsome gynecologist who lives in Toledo (Spain), does not have just a clientele due to the jealousy that his sex appeal causes in the husbands and boyfriends of his patients. To make matters worse, his mother still treats him like a child and the traditionalist members of his girlfriend's family don't look kindly upon Pedro. But on a trip to Madrid to attend a conference on medicine he meets Antón, his effeminate neighbor of the fifth floor, whose fashion boutique for women thrives thanks to the complicity he knows to establish with his customers.

Below average Spanish comedy with the great Alfredo Landa that had much success at the box office
6 July 2016 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

The film deals with a young gynecologist , Pedro Andreu (Jean Sorel) , living in Toledo , he has his consulting room partially empty , while his neighbour Antón Gutiérrez (Alfredo Landa) , a gay fashion designer has his full business for his homosexuality . When Pedro is in Madrid participating at a gynecology conference , he sees Antonio at a Discoteque , as he is amusing himself along with some gorgeous girls . Antonio tells him he occasionally goes to Madrid to enjoy and in Toledo he poses as a gay to take clients . Then , Pedro's girlfriend Jacinta (Ira De Furstemberg) goes to Madrid and finds an extraordinary surprise , she meets his sweetheart Pedro living at an apartment with the gay Antón . As Jacinta thinks Pedro become a homosexual and problems ensue . Then , the gossips run throughout Toledo and that's why the consulting room is plenty of patients .

Embarrassing comedy that contains crazy events , laughs , amusement and absurd situations . It takes a simple concept , a duo of shameless friends execute petty tricks to disguise as gays so that they carry out their main purports : to make love beautiful young women , particularly foreign girls . "Thou Shalt Not Covet Thy Fifth Floor Neighbour" is an essential and fundamental representation on the Spanish comedy . It benefits from the efficient acting by Alfredo Landa who steals the show as a false gay . In addition , the support cast is frankly excellent , filled with familiar faces and prestigious Spanish secondaries , such as : Isabel Garcés , Margot Cottens , Maria Isbert , Mara Laso , Angel Menendez , Emilio Rodríguez Guadalupe Muñoz Sampedro , Adrián Ortega , Licia Calderon , Sergio Mendizábal , and Alvaro De Luna , among others . And being a Spain/Italy co-production here appear some Italian secondaries , such as : Annabella Incontrera , Franco Balducci and Malisa Longo . Humor is sometimes cheesy and gross-out with numerous naughty and picaresque situations such as sex jokes , adulteries , jealousy , and erotic scenes . The film attempts to give laughs and it works here and there , resulting in an amusing though failed film . My feelings are extremely mixed but I must admit there are some brief and no very enjoyable laughters ; however , it also packs uneven comedy , piggy humor , and farcical happenings . There are some diverting jokes in the film and the cast , playing eccentric characters . Disconcerting screenplay by the prolific Juan José Alonso Millán , a writer and playwright who wrote lots of Spanish comedies .

The film was badly directed by Ramon Fernández , including great number of zooms , lousy pacing and ridiculous situations . Ramon was a decent craftsman , expert on Spanish comedy . His film debut was ¨Aquí Están Las Vicetiples¨ thanks to producer Vicente Escrivá , being followed by ¨Ahí Va Otro Recluta¨ , ¨Simón Contamos Contigo¨, ¨Matrimonio Al Desnudo¨, ¨Doctor Me Gustan Las Mujeres¨ and the successful sentimental comedy ¨Margarita Se LLama Mi Amor (1961) ¨ . He also made other genres as kiddies films , such as : ¨El Cristo Del Océano¨, ¨Aventuras De Enrique Y Ana¨ and a police story , at his best , : ¨Rueda De Sospechosos¨. And a nice adaptation of the classic written by Luis Vélez Guevara : ¨El Diablo Cojuelo¨. This "Thou Shalt Not Covet Thy Fifth Floor Neighbour" resulted to be the most box office film of the Spanish cinema until ¨The Others¨, or ¨Los Otros¨ by Alejandro Amenábar .
