San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
Fabrice Luchini is one of the delights of world cinema, and in The Women on the 6th Floor he finds a role ideally suited to his odd mix of fussiness and sensitivity.

The Women on the 6th Floor shouldn't work, but this efficient flick whisks away our cynicism.

There are few reasons you must see this movie, but absolutely none that you should not.

Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern
Mr. Luchini has a touching way of opening up the repressed heroes he often plays, and Ms. Verbeke's droll manipulations - and genuine sweetness - are more than enough to justify the transformation that María and the other maids work on Jean-Louis's life.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

By Liam Lacey
A sporadically amusing, occasionally off-putting French farce.

It plays everything safe, keeping all its edges rounded and its lips sealed in territory ripe for sociopolitical commentary, making even The Help's glib depiction of African American servitude seem nearly honest.

Miami Herald

By Rene Rodriguez
Still, this is one French comedy that could have used a little more hand wringing and a little less whimsy.

New York Post

By V.A. Musetto
Has a few things going for it -- a winning performance by Luchini and a small role by Pedro Almodóvar favorite Carmen Maura. But these talented folks can't compensate for a plot that strains credulity and lacks badly needed social bite. Wait for the DVD.

New York Daily News

By Elizabeth Weitzman
Philippe Le Guay's carefully-tailored crowd-pleaser does have its pleasures, even if originality is not among them.

Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
The Women on the 6th Floor is delicate and sensitive and utter bollocks - a bourgeois wet dream made to soothe the souls and stir the loins of powerful men in midlife crisis. But some of us wish we could see this movie told from the maids' point of view.
