But when Dora moves out of the apartment to live with her boyfriend after decades of service as a maid, Beba learns that friendship is invaluable.

Audience Reviews for Live-In Maid

  • Sep 29, 2011
    Poignant and masterful, Live-In Maid is an involving unorthodox presentation of the averse relationship, more appropriately, friendship, of an imperious bourgeois and a taciturn domestic attendant. Emotionally complex and ambiguous, Live-In Maid is transcendental of social class, precisely aware of the situation and disposition of the bourgeoisie in the times of economic recession and profoundly acquainted with the vicissitudes and realities of life. Emphatic.

    A well crafted film study of declining social status and precarious friendships. Understated and subtle but brilliantly presented.

    No matter if your rich or poor, you can always feel lonely and find friendship in the most strangest of relationships? at least thats what I got out of the movie.

    [font=Century Gothic]"Live-in Maid" is set around the financial crisis that crippled the Argentinian economy in 2001. Beba(Norma Aleandro) has not been able to pay her maid, Dora(Norma Argnentina), for the past several months. Beba is currently trying to sell cosmetics, as she desperately tries to hold onto her dignity and pride but they are fading fast. Dora has worked for Beba's family for the past 28 years but is getting frustrated at the lack of money since she would like her significant other, Miguel(Raul Panguinao), to pave the floor of his house.[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"Live-in Maid" is a low-key observation on the nature of class in society. Beba and Dora come from very different backgrounds but in the film they both have something in common - a lack of money. At first, I would say the two women share a symbiotic relationship but could they actually be friends?[/font]
