The women on the 6th floor

Director: Philippe Le Guay

Cast: Fabrice Luchini, Natalia Verbeke, Sandrine Kiberlain, Carmen Maura, Lola Duenas

A class-conscious French comedy set in Paris in 1962. Conservative, middle aged stockbroker, Jean-Louis (Fabrice Luchini) lives in a spacious apartment with his fussy, nervous wife, Suzanne (Sandrine Kimberlain) and their two spoiled children. When their longtime family maid leaves, Jean-Louis hires a young Spanish replacement called Maria (Natalia Verbeke), who lives on the sixth floor with other Spanish immigrants. When by chance the fastidious financier discovers the women are living in restricted circumstances he tries to help them. Sensitized to something different in his behavior Suzanne assumes he is having an affair with a wealthy female client. Mildly amusing and something to see if you are in the mood.
