    Slice of Life


Six domestic workers share their thoughts about their employers and their experiences on the job in this satiric comedy. While we never see the people they work for, we're given a look at the absurdities and indignities of their daily routines, as well as a look into their lives outside work. One signs up for a modeling course only to discover she's being recruited for an escort service, while another finds herself having an affair with the chauffeur working for the same family, and a third falls for a good-looking criminal. Directed by Fernando Meirelles and Nando Olival, Domesticas was shown in competition at the 2001 Rotterdam Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
