Directed by Philippe Le Guay, the movie takes place in Paris, in 1960. Jean-Louis (Fabrice Luchini) lives a bourgeois existence absorbed in his work, living peacefully with his neurotic socialite wife Suzanne (Sandrine Kiberlain) while their children are away at boarding school. The couple’s world is turned upside down when they hire a Spanish maid, Maria (Natalia Verbeke). Through Maria, Jean-Louis discovers an alternative reality a few floors up on the building’s 6th floor, the servants’ quarters. He befriends a group of sassy maids who are refugees from Franco’s regime, teaching him that there’s more to life than stocks and bonds. 106 min.
