In this splendid comedy from director Philippe Le Guay (whose Three By Eight was one of the revelations of Rendezvous 2001), stockbroker Jean-Louis Joubert (the always marvelous Fabrice Luchini) lives a peaceful yet boring bourgeois existence with his socialite wife (Sandrine Kiberlain) in 1960s Paris. But when a flock of exuberant Spanish maids moves into the sixth floor servants quarters, Jean-Louis’ world is turned upside down, particularly by beautiful Maria (Natalia Verbeke), whose irrepressible passion for life threatens to shake Jean-Louis from his staid foundation. Featuring strong support from veteran Almodóvar muses Carmen Maura and Lola Dueñas, Service Entrance is, in any language, a big-hearted delight.
