Paris, 1960. Jean-Louis (Fabrice Luchini, Potiche, The Girl From Monaco) lives a bourgeois existence with his neurotic socialite wife Suzanne (Sandrine Kiberlain, Mademoiselle Chambon) while their children are away at boarding school. The couple's world is turned upside-down when they hire María, a Spanish maid who introduces Jean-Louis to an alternative reality a few stories up on the sixth floor servants' quarters. Befriending a group of sassy Spanish maids (including Pedro Almódovar's star Carmen Maura, Volver, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown), the women teach him there's more to life than stocks and bonds, and their influence on the house ultimately transforms everyone's life.

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    The French have a knack for it. They've been making funny and agreeable movie farces for forever, and seeing The Women on the 6th Floor makes you hope they'll never stop.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    There are few reasons you must see this movie, but absolutely none that you should not.

    The New York Times Manohla Dargis

    Lighter than a meringue and as insubstantial, the French boulevard comedy The Women on the 6th Floor was designed for the gentle laughter it easily earns.
