Small Apartments is a 2012 comedy-drama film directed by Jonas Åkerlund and starring Matt Lucas, Peter Stormare, and James Caan. The movie is based on the novel by Chris Millis, who also wrote the screenplay. The movie revolves around the life of Franklin Franklin, portrayed by Matt Lucas, a clumsy and eccentric man who lives in a small apartment in a run-down building with odd neighbors. Franklin’s life spirals out of control after he accidentally kills his landlord, Mr. Olivetti, played by Peter Stormare, with a fire extinguisher. Franklin is forced to dispose of the body and cover up the crime, which leads to a series of comedic mishaps.

As Franklin tries to deal with the aftermath of the murder, he also has to navigate his dysfunctional relationships with his brother, Bernard, played by James Caan, and his neighbor, the beautiful and mysterious Simone, played by Juno Temple. Bernard is an alcoholic who constantly berates Franklin, while Simone is a devout Christian who has a dark secret.

Small Apartments features a quirky cast of characters who all have their own unique quirks and eccentricities. In addition to Franklin, Bernard, and Simone, there is Tommy Balls, a foul-mouthed ex-con who befriends Franklin, and Dr. Sage Mennox, a smarmy self-help guru who delivers motivational speeches from his balcony.

The film is notable for its distinctive visual style, which blends bright colors, quirky camera angles, and surreal dream sequences. Small Apartments also includes a number of musical performances, including a catchy theme song performed by Matt Lucas.

Overall, Small Apartments is a darkly comedic and offbeat film that blends elements of crime, drama, and comedy. The movie explores themes of loneliness, redemption, and self-discovery, and features standout performances from its talented cast.
