The Housekeeper (Une Femme de Ménage)

Nobody does sex like the French. This new film by Claude Berri (Jean de Florette) shows us the arty side of bored French people in heat. Fussy, middle-aged and recently divorce, Jacques (Jean-Pierre Bacri) hires a shallow but reasonably attractive young woman (Émilie Dequenne) to help clean his apartment. She soon moves into the place, and the two, inevitably, end up in bed together. It's a minor tale of a mismatched couple, but one that revels in the wise, occasionally witty details of love and sex. In French with English subtitles. 91 minutes
