All in all-if all is meant moderately-the story leaves an agreeable aftertaste, which lingers longer than we expected.
July 15, 2012
The unreconstructed nature of the comedy ensures that the jokes and even the shots are awfully familiar.

The socio-economic moral is ladled on like great big dollops of paella.

Luchini almost rescues it from its own complacency, but the script is equal parts blocked toilets and soft-boiled eggs.

Que pasa? Rien d'importance.

The film sidesteps all complexities and leaves us with a closing shot that should come with a bucket.
July 1, 2012
Enjoyably satirical and occasionally insightful, it's betrayed by some lazy stereotyping.
December 2, 2011
Charming performances and the naivete of the characters go a long way toward smoothing over the characters' perpetuation of class distinctions and patronizing attitudes.
November 25, 2011
A sweet yet occasionally heavy-handed comedy about class relations in 1962 Paris...

"The Women on the 6th Floor" is a pleasant movie, even-tempered, a romantic fantasy.

"The Women on the 6th Floor" shouldn't work, but this efficient flick whisks away our cynicism.

This is one French comedy that could have used a little more hand wringing and a little less whimsy.
October 21, 2011
A sporadically amusing, occasionally off-putting French farce.

The period detail grounds it and gives us an interesting look into class as it existed in France some 45 years ago.

The Women on the 6th Floor follows the well-worn story pathway about relationships between bosses and servants, but does so with a sense of genuine joy that mostly makes up for any lack of originality.

"The Women on the 6th Floor'' is delicate and sensitive and utter bollocks - a bourgeois wet dream made to soothe the souls and stir the loins of powerful men in midlife crisis.
October 7, 2011
It gives us the sort of problem-free escape that poor beleaguered Jean-Louis can only daydream of.
