Storyline

Madrid 1961. Ana Mari is a spinster, lame, a follower of Franco and an instructor in the Female Section. Following Franco's orders, she begins to work as a maid at Ava Gardner's home with a mission of spying on her. For this, she must pretend to be married to Manolo, a hustler who will become the American actress' chauffeur. Manolo tries to take advantage of his position for his dodgy dealings with gypsy clans, and ends up involving Ana Mari and her schizophrenic brother, Floren. Little by little, this leads to an intimate relationship between them. Together with a young maid, Pilar, they will serve during the continuous parties that Ava and her circle enjoy in the Dolce Vita reserved for the elite in Madrid. Parties that will create growing tensions with her downstairs neighbors, none other than General Perón and his wife, recently exiled from Argentina.

Another classic product of Spain in the las 40 years: a heavy critical look of Spain to evidence how nice and good were the communists and socialist, and how nasty the rest
