Louis Proyect

Incisive study of class relationships between a pauperized would-be aristocratic woman and the maid who is increasingly ready to break free.

Live-in Maid is a study of two women who appear not to like each other very much, yet their link makes for a moving drama about friendship.

It paints a lovely, intimate portrait of a complex relationship and shows a side of Latin American life we rarely see on American screens.

From the rooms and spaces which house the two women to the slow unraveling of their history together, Live In Maid is a wonder of economic storytelling.

As a character study it carries a quiet, almost serene dramatic power as well as a strong current of dark humor.

If you care about the art of movie acting, run to the Charles to see Norma Aleandro bring tragicomic stature to the role of a haute bourgeois Buenos Aires woman fallen on hard times in Live-In Maid.

A vivid portrait of a society in the midst of wrenching change, but it transcends its immediate context to become a thoughtful, even unforgettable, chamber piece, performed with exquisite subtlety by two fine actresses.

It's a small movie but a smartly detailed one.

Gaggero not only draws out such nuances from the two women but illustrates the complexities of their friendship with carefully constructed cinematography.

Even if I knew how things turned out in Live-In Maid, a fine Argentinean film with English subtitles, I wouldn't give away the ending.

Gaggero keeps his focus on the two women who, in order to survive, discover they must drop the facade of class and act upon their 30-year relationship.

Writer-director Gaggero shoots for a kind of docu-realism, with a few overtly cinematic interludes, like one well-paced split-screen sequence.

Dora and Beba both seem like real people, independent women who struggle to hide how dependent they really are.

Film Threat

An unexpectly affectionate study of friendship between two very different Argentinian women who come from two different social classes.

Ken Fox
TV Guide's Movie Guide

The economic and social crisis that rocked Buenos Aires is only obliquely referred to, but in the character of Beba -- so beautifully played by the great Norma Aleandro -- we see the image of Argentina: a dignified beauty laid low by economic catastrophe.

They [Aleandro and Argentina] take what could be clichéd characters and turn them into living, breathing people that viewers can care about.
