I wouldn't want this Housekeeper around my house, but your mileage may vary.

...possesses a shrewd understanding of the way human beings crave and pursue affection.

Dequenne fills the free-spirited role of Laura adequately enough. But there's precious little chemistry or understanding as to why she's attracted to Jacques...

...a refreshing alternative to the myriad of overcranked stories churned out by Hollywood.

Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton make the life of a middle-aged single person look highly desirable. The Housekeeper doesn't deal in such delusions.

It's as if it's being told to you by a distracted middle-aged narrator who's looking at a beautiful college girl out of the corner of his eye.

None of this is profoundly new, but the delicacy of the telling is well worth the experience.

Sells sex like how ice cream is hawked on a hot July day at the beach.

A lovely film about sadness and mess, both inside and out, and how we are able to make ourselves feel better - temporarily

With their reverse-chemistry, [Bacri and Dequenne are] so good together -- hot and hilarious simultaneously -- that you'd think they'd been a team for ages.

Both Bacri and Dequenne are surprisingly effective in their performances and manage to sell us on their chemistry.

Bacri and Dequenne fill out their underwritten roles, giving this small, unassuming story a few sparks.

Inexplicably large chunks of the movie are dedicated to Jacques smoking cigarettes, reading books, listening to jazz and looking pensive. What are we supposed to do with that?

Continually has you expecting... the predictable worst, but Berri manages to keep the tables turned on his female lead, and his audience, turning a fairly flimsy storyline into an enjoyable film in the process.

It's a slight film, well-acted by Bacri and Emilie Dequenne.
