Adding a little spice to a waning marriage, Anne and Bob, a wealthy and well-connected American couple, move into a manor house in romantic Paris. While preparing a particularly luxurious dinner for sophisticated international friends, our hostess discovers there are thirteen guests. Panic-stricken, Anne insists her loyal maid Maria disguise herself as a mysterious Spanish noble woman to even out the numbers. But a little too much wine, and some playful chat, lead Maria to accidentally endear herself to a dandy British art broker. Their budding romance will have Anne chasing her maid around Paris and finally plotting to destroy this most unexpected and joyous love affair.
Infidelity, lies, and 'putting on appearances' is at the centre of this film. No one is who they appear to be. A woman craves for attention, another lets her husband have an affair to confirm his dedication to her. An older man seeks solace without pressure. What we can first perceive as a true love soon manifests into one of shallow fancy, carried by whim and ended with a truth.If you want to see a stereotypical love affair with cute tied up with a ribbon ending, do not watch this film, If you are open to the reality of life, then this is one for you.
