A Master Piece
21 November 2009 | by BtsallenSee all my reviews

This is the true great movie of the year. Intimate,funny and unpredictable. When I started watching the film I thought that I knew how it would end( I always know), either there was going to be some killings or they were going to show us the true colors of the "capitalist employers". I was completely wrong . I kept peeping into the lives of this upper middle class Chilean family and their very awkward maid utterly fascinated by everything and enjoying every minute. It looks like the movie was filmed with a hand held camera which combine with the very good acting it makes you believe that you are not watching a movie but a story from real life.
