Critic Reviews for The Chambermaid (La camarista)

All Critics (70) | Top Critics (22)

[An] engrossing narrative feature debut by actor-turned-director Lila Avilés.

March 17, 2020 | Full Review…

How the film counters its protagonist's ambitions makes for an alternately bleak and reverent experience, leaving us with an understanding of what "women's work" really means.

February 25, 2020 | Full Review…

This is a very quiet and understated observational drama. It's not just quiet, but patient... It's also very compassionate.

October 1, 2019 | Full Review…

This is brilliantly confident film-making.

July 29, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

This wry, delicately austere debut from Mexican theatre director Lila Avilés goes one step further. To quote a famous TV sitcom line: "I don't speak maid." With Avilés's help, we're taught a new language.

July 26, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

No trace of the literary or theatrical remains in Avilés's long takes and snatched, blank dialogue. The picture wraps a whole world around us.
