Paris, 1960. Jean-Louis lives a peaceful yet boring bourgeois existence with his wife, a perfect socialite, his children in a boarding school and his finance office. The family has their world turned upside down when exuberant Spanish maids move into their building’s sixth floor.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
There's only one genre in contemporary European cinema that competes with the Italian Comedy for being cinema's zeró degré and that's the French Family Comedy. For all the wholesome it is, unfortunately :( but I loved the night <3
Let's say you are in the shit & you are in need of a lift. This will help you: here we are with an ultra light funny love comedy! It is sweet, romantic, delightful, enjoyable and makes you absolutely feel good immediately (but not at all intellectually compelling). An old & rich guy falls in love with young & poor maid. It is Fabrice Luchini who makes the difference!
An amusing tale of somebody trying to break out of his bourgeois life. Interesting, well made and witty. I particularly liked the performance of Natalia Verbeke who also appears in one of my favourite films, Jump Tomorrow.
