Vic and Bob have done sketch shows (The Smell of Reeves and Mortimer), web series (Vic & Bob’s Afternoon Delights), comedy dramas (Catterick, Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased)) and the greatest quiz show of all time (Shooting Stars), but until now they’ve never done a sitcom as sit-commy as this.

The Brazilian director Kleber Mendonça Filho has made a haunting and enigmatic feature debut in Neighbouring Sounds. For much of its running time it plays like a weird soap opera without a plot.
