This work is a critical review of the Spanish film “Toc Toc”, directed by Vicente Villanueva and released in 2017. The feature film was produced from the adaptation of a homonymous play written by the French author Laurent Baffie. It is a comedy that addresses in a fun, light and unusual way the very current theme of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
The present review carries out an analysis of the film “Toc Toc” seeking to discuss the idea of aesthetic finishing of itself in the light of the concepts of unfinished, alterity and exotopia proposed by the linguist Bakhtin and the assumptions of Hermans’ Dialogical Self Theory. In addition, it seeks to reflect on the psychological dynamics generated from cinematographic shots in order to ponder the role of cinema in human development.
