Intricate psychological thriller “The Occupant” (Hogar) takes viewers on a mysterious, disturbing journey that frequently tests their devotion and slightly freaks them out. There are occasions when the film even goes beyond its acceptable bounds—possibly so that viewers might experience its impact and comprehend what even regular individuals, who we see around us every day, are capable of accomplishing. It’s known as The Parasite Effect. Netflix is taking a chance on a movie called The Occupant, where a guy tries to con his way into a better existence. It borrows all the themes from Bong Joon Ho’s Oscar-winning picture but has little of the wit, flair, or depth of thought. Instead, the Spanish filmmaking brothers David and Alex Pastor’s production creates what is essentially a 1990s thriller out of a conflict between the Haves and the Have Nots, complete with extravagant plot twists, implausible behaviour, and absurdly wealthy set design. Although it has its joys, it never fully grips the audience the way it should.
A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING OF THE OCCUPANT’S STORYLINE
The protagonist of “Hogar,” sometimes known as “The Occupant,” is Javier Muoz, a once successful advertising executive. He possesses a wonderful family, an opulent home, and nearly everything else. However, Javier is compelled to leave behind his former home and scale back his prior lifestyle after finding it difficult to land a new job. His wife continues to support him despite everything and has never questioned him. What appears to be a simple lifestyle shift quickly develops into an obsession for Javier, who begins stalking the new homeowners of his former home. To be sure he gets back what he once held, he schemes to infiltrate their lives. And he is prepared to do anything to get his former, ideal life back.

HOW THE ENDING OF THE OCCUPANT WENT
Javier might be living his former lifestyle in the movie’s climax. He begins working for a reputable advertising agency, he marries a woman who accepts him as he is, and he has a daughter he believes to be superior to his son. Most importantly, he has his former residence back. Javier eventually feels content with his life in the last scenes as he gazes at the stainless tap in his kitchen. He then extends his new home’s automatic shades to take in the vista outside his window. This contrasts with the movie’s opening scene, as he does the same thing just before leaving this house. Javier still exhibits no shame or remorse for what he has done at this point, despite utterly disregarding his previous family and even murdering an innocent guy. He exudes a sense of pride for what he has accomplished. His willingness to start over if necessary is only confirmed in this final scene.
