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 makingWritten by

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.
