Interview with Caye Casas, the director of "The Coffee Table", interviewer Javier Garcia Puerto
"I want the audience to go through all the emotions, to feel the movie." - Caye Casas
The film centers on Jesus and Maria, a couple who have just had a baby, and are struggling with their relationship. While redesigning their living space, they bring a new coffee table into the room. This small, seemingly unimportant piece of furniture turns out to be a game-changing factor in their whole existence. In many ways a truly daring and brave film that captures you from the first sequence and creates an atmosphere that will make you want to either escape or stay there and enjoy. Which is to be expected from a merrily uncomfortable story far from political correctness.
Caye Casas has had quite a peculiar career, with metaphysical titles like “Nothing”, “RIP” and “Killing God” (co-directed with Albert Pinto), combining a diversity of original ideas which go straight to your brain. With “The Coffee Table” (his solo debut), he emerges as one of the most imaginative, surprising, and genuine voices among new directors in the international arena.
