Live-in Maid

From Argentina comes this stage-like drama about two women in an uncomfortable situation. Snooty divorcée Beba (Norma Aleandro) can't afford to pay her long-suffering maid Dora (Norma Argentina) of 30 years. At the same time, Dora can't afford to quit, thanks to her country's ongoing economic crisis. The resulting situation forces both women to test their roles of employer/employee, mistress/servant. Shot almost documentary style, the film features moments of quiet psychological insight and a couple fine performances. In Spanish with English subtitles. 83 minutes
