Journal d'une femme de chambre

Benoît Jacquot France, 2015

spiderliliez's rating of the film Diary of a Chambermaid

I just realized how different this was from the original novel. It's changed so much, I need to read the book. Despite the really impressive performances, most notably by Léa Seydoux and Clotilde Mollet; I am not convinced this was even a good adaptation. For one, it's awfully and morally flawed. And sadly, not exactly giving any woman justice.
