Where does the story, The Occupant, take place? It does not mention it from the movie plotline. All I can find is this picture that may indicate which city it is.

    I haven't seen the movie, but the picture shows the skyline of Hong Kong, one can prominently see the Bank of China Tower, and to the right, you see a tiny bit of the Observation Wheel. – Oliver_C Aug 31 '20 at 8:39
  • The title of your post and the contents do not ask the same thing. Either you want to know the place in that picture, or you want the location where the movie is taking place. And the location shown in that picture is irrelevant trivia WRT the movie. – BCdotWEB Aug 31 '20 at 11:18
  • yeah, that is what confused me. I realized it Hong Kong, but everyone spoke Spanish. – Yu Zhang Aug 31 '20 at 22:43

IMDb suggests that Barcelona a city of Spain was its place of shooting.

The plot suggests that

It follows Javier Muñoz ... has been forced to surrender his swanky Barcelona apartment.

The directors, David Pastor and Álex Pastor, in an interview said,

“In this case, we wanted to shoot it in Barcelona ....And we wanted to portray Spain and life in Spain after the crisis...”

    I'm no Barcelona expert, but I doubt there's any part of the city where there's such a concentration of highrises and office buildings. – BCdotWEB Aug 30 '20 at 22:35
  • Since the comment in the OP suggests it is in Hong Kong, I edited my answer. – Spectra Aug 31 '20 at 12:28

The picture you posted is wildly misleading. The next shot clearly shows that it is an advert opposite the window of his apartment:

(You can see the lead character in the window on the right.)

Which is actually already clear because in the shot you screenshotted, the boats at the bottom don't move. Plus there is a flatness to it that wouldn't be there if this was a real panorama visible from his apartment.

  • thanks, this explained my confusion. – Yu Zhang Sep 1 '20 at 1:25
