A possibly watershed day in the life of a maid at a prestigious Belin hotel.
First I should say that this review is being given by one who does not speak German, however I did not need to do so as you will presently understand.
This movie was eventually marketed as a pornographic film which is a great pity.
The acting, casting and cinematography are as good as I have ever seen. The directing is also first rate considering the limitations imposed by the money available, a paltry 60,000 Euros.
In my opinion, this is a film that was meant to explore many facets of the central character and her life; excellently played by Volm.
In the course of her day there are many possible avenues created for further plot development, but they all remain latent and unexplored for lack of money.
Begging further work: the relationships with her fellow employees; her immediate boss who possibly feels paternal toward her, and another maid who makes a pass at her in their changing room. Then there is either a fashion shoot or perhaps a porno shoot in one of the rooms she is to clean and replenish. She's both titillated and amused by the happening, and they show more than a mild interest in her as well.Finally,the encounter with The Man, played by Schick. I don't want to say how it begins because it would spoil a delightful, if fanciful, seduction- and how this develops int the hottest sexual encounter I have ever seen in what ought to have been a full length movie. The movie is roughly 39 minutes long and the sexual encounter comprises roughly six minutes at the end. With only 60,000 Euros, they had to end it SOME way.
