Me fascina esta película. Un retrato sumamente perfecto y conmovedor de las diferencias de clase en Argentina y de la inevitable intimidad emocional que resulta entre el opresor y el oprimido.

Just wanted to let you know that the review below is quite in inaccurate. I doubt the person who wrote it actually saw the film.

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.

Una historia tan real como la vida, sin artificios ni recursos estilísticos. Brillantes los dos papeles principales: la Señora Beba y Dora. No sé si catalogarla como drama pero encajría perfectamente en la vida de muchas familias en estos tiempos de crisis actuales.

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

Boring. Didn't make it half way through movie. Main character woman very unappealing and uninteresting. I'm afraid this movie is too true-to-life.

This is just such a deep drama but made beautifully out of tiny and every day details. I loved the stunning performances and the perfect rhythm. This movie relies completely in the relationship of these two woman and how their completely opposite life's get to depend so much on each other.

Sweet little movie about two women and their relationship as employer and employee, their loneliness and their own struggle with everyday affairs. I quite like low budget movies when they are this good.

how two lonely women from different social backgrounds have to accept that they need each other and during that process they each move in the other's direction until there is no class difference left

This may be one of the lesser of the recent Argentine films about the economic crisis but it is still better than most films out there.

The story of a woman in economic difficulties, the filmmakers are careful not to have Beba change too much or understand her maid more than is likely. Still, as films about the crisis go, another with the wonderful Norma Aleandro (Son of the Bride) is far more effective and captivating, centering on other stories rather than economic decline itself. In fact, there are several others that are better. Still, taken on its own terms, Cama adentro features solid acting, decent writing, and a somewhat nuanced vision of class relations.
