The Chambermaid

The Chambermaid

In The Chambermaid, the quiet domestic tasks of the title character become mesmerising under director Lila Avilés’s unique eye. Never leaving the confines of the hotel where Eve (Gabriela Cartol) works, we follow her meticulous attentions on the 21st floor.

Giving generous and tender space to a character whose profession contrives to make her invisible, Avilés’s makes electric drama from minor episodes: a VIP guest who hoards shampoo, a guest lost among his bed clothes, a phone call home filled with longing. Unsentimental, this is a perfect companion and counterpoint to Roma.
