The Weekend Movie Recap: 12/2/11

THE WOMEN ON THE 6TH FLOOR – This French film takes place in 1960’s France and shows the class difference between a rich French couple who own a building and the Spanish maids who live upstairs.  The movie is anchored by a terrific performance by Fabrice Luchini, who plays an older married man who is intrigued by their new maid.  The relationship between those two is subtle and endearing.  I also really liked Sandrine Kiberlain who plays the wife of the older man, who just wants to be loved by her husband.  The older maids are a colorful bunch that give the movie most of it’s laughs.  It’s light entertainment, but could make for a charming evening if you need a break from all the dramatic Oscar bait.  Rating:

It’s a pretty slow week for new movies.  If you haven’t seen them already, I highly recommend seeing HUGO and THE MUPPETS.  DO NOT miss those!!!
