An aspiring author during the civil rights movement of the 1960s decides to write a book detailing the African-American maids' point of view on the white families for which they work, and the hardships they go through on a daily basis.
This is the first installment of several MTV movies based on Boileau/Narcejac novels .This famous team was one of the best thrillers writers and their works produced at least two classics both in IMDb top 250 ("vertigo" "Les Diboliques").
I was looking forward to watching "La Vie En Miettes" :what a disappointment!I have read all BN novels and I did not even recognize the plot (with the exception of a vague story of inheritance).The movie is slow-moving,with uninteresting characters and when it's over ,you have the feeling of having watched a nothing story;the hero never seems in jeopardy (one of the writer's permanent features,par excellence the victim's thriller) One can expect more of the next movies ;it can hardly be worse.
