Love among the working poor
22 February 2000 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

A maid to a rich family loves a man, but a postman living in the courtyard of the same building secretly loves her and by interfering causes tragedy.

Perhaps best for the production design and for the fact that the three principles get most of the screen time.
