Story


Franklin Franklin plays the alphorn and dreams of Switzerland. His crazy brother sends him fingernail clippings in the mail. One of his neighbors is a forgetful pot-head, the other a gruff busybody who doesn't miss anything. Across the street live a mother and her fifteen-year-old daughter, whom he likes to watch from his window, but none of these are Franklin's real problem. His real problem is that his landlord is dead, laid out on the linoleum of his kitchen, and Switzerland seems farther away all the time.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“.."Small Apartments" wants to be spiky and tough, and yet ultimately it's far too safe and cuddly..”
by Drew Taylor [The Playlist]
“..unrelenting quirkathon assembles a promising cast, winds them up like so many tin toys and then sits back to observe the awful racket they make when marching to the beat of their own drums..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
“..what we got here is more of a black comedy murder cover-up. It has its funny moments but the best part has to be this film's collection of talent who pop in and out. Not sure if I could watch this again but one viewing was manageable..”
by Mike Gencarelli [Media Mikes]
