Despite the statement that this has English subtitles - it doesn't! I had to buy a second DVD marked "UK Release"

UPDATE:
The product description has since been amended and now only shows "French subtitles".

It is nevertheless, an excellent film and well worth watching, but check that you get a version that has the language you require.

Format: DVD
This is a very enjoyable film that manages to shed light into corners of the human psyche that normally stay in the dark in material led by broad comic appeal. Initially I feared it would be too sentimental, as the characters seemed to be being set up along quite clichéd lines, but this is neatly undermined as it proceeds, without obviously turning everything on its head either. Fabrice Luchini gives the events their real heart with his amazing performance - it has so many nuances, and his facial expression is extraordinary. He gets a range and rightness in every scene that raises the material, and is a complete joy to watch. A stockbroker in a stale bourgeois marriage living in Paris in 1962, he is led by an interest in the new maid, employed by his wife, to take an interest in the very poorly appointed 6th floor flat where she lives, along with a number of other Spanish women in service in the posh apartments below. Nothing moves too fast, lending an air of credibility to what is actually a bit far-fetched, but what follows amply justifies whatever it may have of pure fantasy. The scenes with the maids achieve a genuine joyousness, led by the delightful Carmen Maura who at one point leads them in a spontaneous session of singing and twirling around in spite of the cramped space - all part of the art of it, no doubt! In fact what these women do have is the art of living, however limited their circumstances may be, and in this the film does have the ring of truth. The wife - played by Sandrine Kiberlain - also does very well in a role that requires careful pitching. The last 15 minutes are handled with considerable subtlety, rounding off a film it is hard to resist.

I so enjoyed this movie and didn't mind that the leading actor was meant to be 40 and was in fact 60, for isn't 60 the new 40 these days. I find it difficult to believe anyone could have been better! With nothing but bad news these days, this one really lifted me, in fact as much as "It's A Wonderful Life" does every Christmas. Wonderfully acted by everyone. I will not go into it's story and perhaps spoil all the surprise for you, just see it and I hope you go to bed feeling as good as I did. It's one you will want to see again. Life can be good.

Has Fabrice Luchini ever turned in a less than captivating performance or participated in anything less than a very good film? I can attest he is as lively and interesting on stage as in film after the privilege of seeing him in Fleurs du mal, a tribute to Baudelaire with Sandrine Piau in French song at the Marseilles opera in the summer of 2010. He had the French audience in his hand.

Of course, his performance is central to the film which rather revolves round his character. But all the other actors are excellent too, making the ensemble effect touching and endearing. The two main female roles, contrasting, his wife and the Spanish maid to whom he finally turns in an uncomplicated ending, are also superbly played in an understated way, leaving maximum room for Luchini to develop his role.

This film gripped and entertained me throughout, a modern day sophisticated comedy of errors, or manners perhaps. In the course of which we have to swallow some basic (far fetched or stretched?) premises: that the assimilation of Spanish immigrant workers into Paris would be as comfortable and smooth as the film suggests, that the walls or barriers between any mingling or sharing between these groups or individuals would not in reality be insurmountable. Therefore the basic plot and in particular the ending are fanciful.

However, as Orson Welles pointed out, only in films are there happy endings. This is a film to love and treasure because of that, not despite it, and for Luchini's transcendant screen craft and acting.

Unmissable for fans of his or French film in general.

By Peter Piper TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 18 April 2013
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
There are so many wonderfully observed characters here: the Spanish maids all pulling together in adversity, the shallow wife, the middle-aged businessman, the glamorous actress, the grouchy concierge. Set in 1960s Paris, bourgeois life collides head-on with Spanish pragmatism and joie de vivre amidst gently comic elements. Very much a 'what if?' film, in which plausibility is stretched to the limit to explore a variety of philosophical arguments, at the same time as producing an extremely warm-hearted and enjoyable film. And so romantic that I had to watch the final scene three times in a row.

Writer/director Phillipe Le Guay has elicited absolutely faultless performances from all the participants. The initially stuffy stockbroker, Fabrice Luchini loosens up as he gets to know the maids living in the horrid little garrets at the top of his bourgeois apartment building. He positively exudes a combination of sensitivity and charm to great effect. Natalia Verbeke is absolutely adorable and Sandrine Kiberlaine is extremely effective as the middle-class wife who is exhausted by the emptiness of her daily life.

DVD extras include the director's commentary, a 20 minute 'making of' feature, deleted scenes, and eleven minutes of interviews with Sandrine Kiberlaine and Fabrice Luchini. Unfortunately, there are no English subtitles for any of these. This version also includes a glossy 32 page booklet in French containing colour stills from the film, a synopsis, and interviews with the director and also four of the main cast members.

An extremely entertaining and endearing film. One to watch again.
