La Nana (The Maid): DVD Review

The acclaimed Chilean film and Golden Globe nominee, La Nana (The Maid) is about a middle-aged woman named, Raquel (Catalina Saavedra). She has worked with the same family for the last 23 years of her life. Raquel’s bosses are the wife, Pilar and her college professor husband, Edmuno and their two children: Camila and Lucas. Pilar is very considerate of Raquel to the point that she celebrates her birthday. Yet, not everyone likes the maid. For example, Camila, the eldest child, does not get along with Raquel, but Pilar believes that her daughter is just being a brat; however, after, Raquel suddenly falls ill, Pilar decides to hire a new maid. While Pilar thinks it’s a good idea…Raquel’s jealousy starts to spiral out of control until the sweet maid named Lucy unfreeze the maid’s cold heart.

It is a great film because it explores the thoughts and beliefs of an exhausted maid. Although her past remains a mystery for the audience, Raquel grows slowly throughout the movie. From a militant even somewhat villainous character, Raquel realizes that she deserves to have her personal life. It is worth to buy or rent. My final score is an 8/10.
