The Women on the Sixth Floor - Film

A stellar cast delivers the goods in Philippe Le Guay's smash-hit upstairs/downstairs comedy. It's Paris, 1962. The marvellous Fabrice Luchini (Potiche) stars as wealthy stockbroker Jean-Louis Jouvert, who lives a staid bourgeois existence with his perfectly-presented socialite wife (Sandrine Kiberlain). But when the family's maid abandons them, into the residence comes Maria (Natalia Verbeke): young, hardworking, and - quelle horreur - Spanish! Remarkably, it doesn't take long for the building to become enchanted by the new arrival; Maria rallies the friendship of the other servants on the sixth floor (fabulous turns contributed by two of Almodóvar's favourite señoritas, Carmen Maura and Lola Dueñas) and soon, the balance of the household ruptures into wild, cross-cultural chaos… After premiering at the 2011 Berlin International Film Festival to a standing ovation, it became a massive hit at the French box office earlier this year - fuelled by enthusiastic word of mouth the film achieved over 2.5 million admissions.
