Les femmes du 6ème étage (Philippe Le Guay, Jérôme Tonnerre)

Jean-Louis Joubert is a serious but uptight stockbroker, married to Suzanne, a strict, class-conscious woman, and father of two arrogant teenage boys, currently in a boarding school. The affluent man lives a steady yet boring life. At least until, due to fortuitous circumstances, Maria, the charming new maid, allows him to discover the servants' quarter on the sixth floor of the luxury building he owns. There live a crowd of lively Spanish maids who will help Jean-Louis open up to a new civilisation and a new approach of life. In their company - and more precisely in the company of beautiful Maria - Jean-Louis will gradually become another man... A better man!

Starring: Fabrice Luchini, Sandrine Kiberlain, Natalia Verbeke, Carmen Maura, Lola Dueñas, Berta Ojea, Nuria Solé, Concha Galán, Annie Mercier, Camille Gigot, Jean-Charles Deval

Why I loved this film: It was very well done, showing the point of view of "the help". But is also showed that sometimes belonging to the same class or having the same background does not mean that you will have many things in common, it is always good to meet new people, you never know what surprises there may be in store...
