A middle class couple on the verge of bankruptcy is faced with firing their daughter's illegal Mexican nanny who then risks deportation. A tale of life and love.
20 August 2013 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at the "International Women's Film Festival" in Creteil, France, where it won the " Audience Award" for Best feature.

I was pleasantly surprised by this small budget film.

It is an insightful, intelligent, moving and funny movie. This film is extremely well done. The casting and the acting is spot on, the characters very multi faceted and never caricatural.

The relationaship of the parents ranges from screaming matches to romantic interludes (like any couple), showing the imperfections of the intimacy of a couple's life, but as the movie advances, their humanity takes over and they choose to take the high road and follow their heart despite their financial difficulties Although this is labeled a "lesbian" movie, it is actually a movie about life and love and human relationaships that happens to have a lesbian character. The homosexuality is part of the story but it absolutely does not define it The filming and directing is fast paced and aesthetic, and the music extremely well adapted to the storyline, reflecting the interior world or Margarita.

It succeeds in dealing with a tough issue in a smart and entertaining manner. It is thoughtprovoking without ever being judgemental.

Congratulations!!!!!
