Les Femmes du 6eme Etage (12)

Director Philippe Le Guay. French Comedy with English sub-titles.


The Women on the 6th Floor. Paris, in the early 1960s. Jean-Louis Joubert is a serious but uptight stockbroker, married to Suzanne, a starchy 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 at the service of Jean-Louis' family, makes him discover the servants' quarter on the sixth floor of the luxury building he owns and lives in. There live a crowd of lively Spanish maids who will help Jean-Louis to open to a new civilization 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 Duenas


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

The film was a lovely mixture of humour, social comment and wry observation of human character. There were no negative comments, but several people said they were pleased to have something uplifting to watch, without overt sex and violence to spoil it.
