Storyline

Lynn is the most thorough chambermaid at the hotel where she works. Crippled by her own shyness, she rummages through the guests' belongings and even hides under their beds, vicariously experiencing their discreet interludes. When she finds herself present during a session with the call girl Chiara, Lynn can't help but let her curiosity get the better of her. Bold and unrestrained, Chiara soon draws Lynn out of her shell, opening her up to a new intimacy Lynn had previously only experienced as an intrepid voyeur.

Chiara steps out of the shower and immediately wraps herself in a blue towel, but she is dry. No drying herself off, and no water streams off her body. As she bends down, you can also see her hair is dry. See more »

Amazing movie!
3 June 2020 | by k_grallSee all my reviews

I love this film that I just saw and had to write about it!

It's Lynn's experience, I just find her so intriguing. And the way the camera follows her as she goes about her occupation as a hotel-room cleaner; it gives this person, Lynn, intriguing significance in her normalcy. I found her as charming a character as Amelie! (from that well known French movie

The thread with Lynn's sexuality was good but I found Lynn herself more intriguing, and I found the possibility of lesbian intimacy with this other woman for Lynn and them, more interesting than the BDSM.

Thoroughly interesting character presentation here, guided by the camera's intriguing focus on this woman. Worth it!
