Critic Reviews for Live-In Maid
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.
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.
Live-In Maid is a modest chamber piece enriched by its affecting human harmonies and overtones.
Audience Reviews for Live-In Maid
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.
a good script - two good actors - and a good director to put it all together - makes a very good film
