Storyline

Auntie Danielle, supposedly in ailing health but in reality just a nasty old bitch, lives with a paid housekeeper who she regularly abuses. When the housekeeper dies falling off a ladder, Danielle moves in with her great-nephew and his family. She continues using her nastiness to manipulate everyone into doing things her way until the family goes on vacation to Greece. The young housekeeper they hire to watch after her knows what Auntie is doing, and deals with her accordingly, and they begin forming respect for each other.

A kick in the nose to the hypocrisy of some family ties
17 January 2007 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Actually, I think you've missed the whole point of the movie. Although most of the film does portray a nasty old lady, the truth is that most of her family members are just a bunch of hypocrites and she simply can't stand people being nice to her simply because she's old. They do not respect her, they pretend that they do, but they don't. The movie is a veiled criticism to the hypocrisy of those family ties. I liked her character from the very first minute because she's honest in the sense that she knows very well that those around her simply can't stand her nor do they respect her will to live and be free. Highly recommended.
