The story of how a maid called Raquel, who has worked for over 20 years in one affluent Chilean household, rediscovers herself. La Nana is a microcosm of Latin social hierarchy while also focusing on one woman's journey to free herself from a mental servitude of her own making Written by

Successful portrait of a small piece of Chilean culture
La nana Is a nice drama movie about the life and also the internal changes of a housekeeper in a wealthy sector of the capital of Chile, Santiago.
It may be just a small history of a small piece of the Chilean culture, but definitely makes point in showing what, for us Chileans, is kind of a rare phenomenon: the way of having the housekeeper living in your own house, just like an individual member of your family. Normally, all the people here employs a maid but just for a some days a week, just to clean or cook, but there is also an large amount of wealthy families who employs these women (they always are) 24hr and 365 days the year. Anyway, is so special this "contract" that these workers become part of the family, and interact with the rest just like any brother, sister, aunt, or even parent.
I think this relationship is perfectly showed in this movie and also adds something it may be common as well and is about the simplistic life of Raquel, because she really doesn't have any other thing to do besides her work.
I recommend this movie also because is a very well directed one; the drama mixed with occasional comedy just do a good job carrying the whole history. It's very absorbent :)
