The Chambermaid is one of the weakest films of the 21st Century so far.

It is quite literally 103 minutes of a service worker going about her daily tasks. It's made with a conventional cinematic structure, but there is no character development. There is no plot advancement. So why make the film in such a straightforward narrative style?

If the idea was to demonstrate the mundanity of a service worker's life, then congratulations; but everyone is already aware of this. We did not need this 'message' (there isn't one) conveyed by way of a feature film; it's offensive to the viewer to waste their precious time and offer nothing in return.

It could reasonably be expected that themes of women's rights or social injustice might be present in the film, but no. They are only there if the viewer decides to implement them. There are some very subtle scenes which appear to touch upon these issues, but it's almost as if the filmmaker was afraid to tackle them.

This film is nothing.
