Palm Pictures cordially invites you and a guest to join us for an advance screening of France's box office and critical smash, THE HOUSEKEEPER (Une Femme de Ménage)
Directed by Claude Berri & Starring Jean Pierre Bacri and Emilie Dequenne.
Wednesday, July 9th at 7 p.m.
A box office smash and critical favorite in France, THE HOUSEKEEPER is the latest from veteran director, Claude Berri (JEAN DE FLORETTE, LUCIE AUBRAC). In Berri's latest tale, set in Paris and the majestic beaches of Normandy, Jacques (THE TASTE OF OTHERS' Jean Pierre Bacri) is a forlorn bachelor living alone after his wife (FAT GIRL director Catherine Breillat) has left him. Deciding to get his life back in order, he hires a housekeeper, Laura (ROSETTA's Emilie Dequenne), to plow through the mess that's overtaken his apartment. He soon learns that she's never done a day of housework in her life. But, her presence adds a joyful spark to his life that's been missing too long and reawakens feelings that Jacques thought were beyond revival. Berri keeps his audience guessing at the outcome in this extremely well acted and meticulously observed film.
"Sparkles with the compressed charm of a masterful short story. Jean Pierre Bacri gives a flawless performance with harshly comic dignity. Emilie Dequenne cultivates an air of tattered insouciance." Leslie Camhi, Village Voice
THE HOUSEKEEPER will open on Friday, July 11th at Lincoln Plaza Cinemas and the Angelika Film Center.
