Storyline

Paris, in the early 1960s. Jean-Louis Joubert is a serious but uptight stockbroker, married to Suzanne, a starchy class-conscious woman and father of two arrogant teenage boys, currently in a boarding school. The affluent man lives a steady yet boring life. At least until, due to fortuitous circumstances, Maria, the charming new maid at the service of Jean-Louis' family, makes him discover the servants' quarter on the sixth floor of the luxury building he owns and lives in. There live a crowd of lively Spanish maids who will help Jean-Louis to open to a new civilization and a new approach of life. In their company - and more precisely in the company of beautiful Maria - Jean-Louis will gradually become another man, a better man. Written by Guy Bellinger

Goofs

When Jean Louis looks to Dolores room, there is a bottle of Oil which is called Fula. This is a Portuguese brand of Oil and the bottle design as it shows in the movie is from the 21st century. Nevertheless, the fact that a Portuguese brand appears in a movie about Spanish maids is interesting. Whether if it was on purpose or not, it's a time mistake, but a good product placement.

Enjoyable and fun film about some lively Spanish maids and their real influence on a mature broker unhappily married
25 November 2013 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

The movie plot about the life of Spanish immigrants in France in the 1960s showing experiences of poor maids as immigrants and adequately reflecting us how was the life of that time . In 1960s Paris, a conservative couple's lives are turned upside down by various Spanish maids . The peculiar marriage called Jean-Louis Joubert (Fabrice Luchini) and Suzanne Joubert (Sandrine Kiberlain) carry out a different life , as Jean-Louis is a hard-working executive and Suzanne is a snobbish wife . The affluent man and the selfish woman live a dull life and they have two arrogant children in a boarding school . At least until due to fortuitous events , there appears Maria (Natalia Verbeke) , the beautiful new maid at the service of Jean-Louis' family, makes him discover the servants' quarter on the sixth floor of the luxurious building he owns and lives in . There lives a community (Carmen Maura as Concepción Ramirez , Lola Dueñas as Berta Ojea as Dolores Carbalan , Nuria Solé as Teresa and Concha Galán as Pilar) of likable Spanish maids , they have said goodbye their families and went abroad . There take place the problems to adapt into a new life ; but later on , they discover a new and agreeable existence . The maids will help Jean-Louis to open to a new culture , introducing him a joyful Spanish group and a new approach of life . In their help and more precisely in the company of charming Maria , Jean-Louis to be turned into a good and philanthropist man .

This interesting film is full of humor , drama , touching scenes and good feeling . It is a simple , dramatic and humorous portrait of a time when the Spanish people had to go other countries in order to encounter a work . This amusing as well as funny picture deals about lives of the immigrants with a minor support in their live condition and including a touching and emotive finale . As in Spain of the 50s and 60s ruled by General Franco there's no job , there's no money , and there's no option for the poor people but to emigrate to a foreign country and attempting to encounter work . As it concerns about the Spanish way of life of a crowd of maids , their habits , costumes ; at the same time they improve the serious but uptight stockbroker who lives a steady yet boring life , being suddenly changed when appear the Spanish maids ; as Jean-Louis will gradually become another man, a better man . Actors are frankly magnificent with a first-rate acting for whole cast . Sensational Fabrice Luchini along with the wife played Sandrine Kinberlain and a gorgeous as well as sympathetic Natalia Verbeke . Special mention to the group of Spanish maids magnificently performed by Carmen Maura , Lola Dueñas , Berta Ojea , among others . Colorful and evocative cinematography by Jean Claude Larrieu . Imaginative as well as sensitive original Music by Jorge Arriagada , Raul Ruiz's usual . It was a success among spectators, as well as a hit smash in the various film festivals it took part in ; as it achieved Prix d'interprétation à Natalia Verbeke au festival Sarlat 2010 .

The motion picture was very well directed by Philippe Le Guay . Philippe Le Guay took inspiration from his own childhood , his father was a stockbroker like Jean-Louis Joubert in the film and he himself had a Spanish maid. This was the number one comedy smash hit from this director . He's a good writer and filmmaker who has directed a few movies , many of them starred by his fetish actor , Fabrice Luchini , such as "Cycling with Moliere" , "The Cost of Living" ¨L'année Juliette¨ and this ¨The Women on the 6th Floor" , his best picture .
