animal lover, gardener, knitter, and gourmet cook


For lack of something better to do, I watched this on New Year’s Eve. The movie told the story of a lower-class family that infiltrates an upper-class family by earning positions as part of their house staff (driver, maid, etc.). The upper-class family does not know that everyone in the lower-class family is related. Anyway, as you can imagine, things go terribly wrong. It was billed as a black comedy, but while I didn’t think it was particularly humorous, it was engrossing.

Factoid: it won four Oscars and was the first non-English language film to win Best Picture.

My rating: 3.5/5
