Comedy
Beautiful Spanish maid Maria (Natalia Verbeke) unwittingly turns the lives of a rich family inside out when she begins to work for them in 1960s Paris in this adorable little flick from French filmmaker Philippe Le Guay. When Maria’s boss, repressed husband-and-father Jean-Louis (Fabrice Luchini), takes a liking to her, he befriends the other maids living in the building in order to learn more about her and her culture. This opens him up to a world he has largely ignored throughout his life, and he finds a new sense of peace among these women. While the film is standard stuff, the charisma and charm of all the actors involved—especially the women playing the servants—makes it feel like something more than just an ordinary romantic comedy.
