Storyline

In Berlin, during one of the hottest summers in the last seven years, Antonia, a single mother, drives her son to the bus station, in order to visit his dad in Paris and stay with him for the next two weeks. The two of them have already planned a trip together to travel to Côte d'Azur, something that Antonia will definitely value, since her demanding job as a hotel maid, housekeeping and cleaning, has left her exhausted, dishevelled and with no personal life. Late again for work, she will use her Maitre d'Hotel's compassion to go unpunished and will begin her work not knowing that in the hotel stays Julius Pass, a famous blind portrait painter, who is waiting for his big exhibition opening. Is this untidy maid who has lost faith in her, going to have a meeting with her fate? Written by Nick Riganas

A beautiful evocation of a perfect day.
12 July 2015 | by Feizal MANSOORSee all my reviews

The two other reviews of this movie, as I write this, both seem to have missed the director's vision. One of them is almost a diatribe and the other an apology. Neither do this sensitive, hand crafted movie justice.

There maybe some technical problems with the editing, for example an unfortunate jerk in continuity early on when the protagonist moves from changing room to being upbraided by Management, but to me from the perspective of what the Director was trying to do and whether he did it, the movie was almost perfect. I don't understand the criticism of the music, the use of Debussy for example was, dare I say, lyrical? Each shot is thought out and framed beautifully. There is subtle complexity to the several story lines of ordinary human interaction each of them confirming in a precise way elemental humanity.

Only a shrink-wrapped hedonist would call this porn. Metaphysical in content it is really a celebration of life as beauty. The tenderness of the final denouement is sublime and it most certainly is not in the sex.
