“The Coffee Table” follows the story of Jesus and Maria, a couple navigating the turbulent waters of their relationship while embarking on the new journey of parenthood.

Director Caye Casas, alongside co-writer Cristina Borobia, crafts a narrative that delves deep into the human psyche, challenging viewers to confront their deepest fears without resorting to the conventional tropes of monsters or gore. Instead, “The Coffee Table” conjures a palpable sense of dread through its masterful storytelling and the haunting specter of fate, promising an experience that will linger long after the credits roll.

As Casas himself puts it, “We wanted to make one of the cruelest films ever made, one that people cannot forget.” True to his word, “The Coffee Table” is a film that dares its audience to embrace the full spectrum of human emotion, offering a cinematic journey that is as unsettling as it is captivating.
