Storyline

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.

Amateurish
26 December 2017 | by GenghisKelvinSee all my reviews

I am attracted to off beat film genre but this one just did not cut it. The movie starts off OK and then gets disjointed with basic 101 directorial omissions which throw you completely, a dinner table scene is preceded with the guests arriving and being welcomed by the hosts with the obligatory kissing and hugging, detailed conversation groups are filmed with dinner table natter at some length, suddenly there is a surprising shot of a child sitting at the table who has not been seen in preceding scenes, he seems to have been added to the movie as an afterthought. The plot is a series of illogical sequences not stitched together by proper direction, the director appears to have relied on the gravitas of Harvey Keitel to smooth over this lack of synchronicity which of course is insufficient glue to stick this mess together.
