Live-in Maid is a 2004 Argentinian drama written and directed by Jorge Gaggero that explores the relationship between a wealthy woman and her housekeeper. Beba Pujol (Norma Aleandro) is a divorced woman who suddenly finds herself enduring financial hardship after losing the support of her rich ex-husband. She has no money to pay hard-working and loyal Dora (Norma Argentina), who served her well for almost 30 years. Dora is forced to resign and search for another job while at the same time trying to finish working at her own house. Dora's husband offers her very little support and she starts missing her old job in Beba's household. Beba is also missing her faithful and obedient maid who has become almost like a sister to her. She is thinking about overcoming her dignity to try get some money from her ex-husband to pay Dora for her services. Their strong friendship proves that social status is not important when people truly care about each other.moreless

Metacritic Score

  • 90

    Los Angeles Times Carina Chocano

    What Live-in Maid offers is a pitch-perfect observation of life on a continent where forms are adhered to, distances aren't really kept, and your best friend is the person who know...

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    Modest in scope, but it feels complete, fully inhabited, in a way that more overtly ambitious movies rarely do.

  • 70

    Variety Deborah Young

    A fairly successful attempt at satire, though given the subject, there's a lot of darkness under the carpet.
