His wife, Suzanne (who complains of her exhausting days of pedicures and bridge), gets upset with their longtime maid Germaine over the redecorating of Jean-Louis' recently deceased mother's room. Germaine quits and a new Spainsh maid, Maria, is hired. Apparently, having a maid from Brittany is no longer "in."
It's almost a French version of "The Help." And as the person who always falls asleep during a movie, reading the subtitles actually kept me awake! Plus, I feel like some of the French I learned in high school and college came back to me. Definitely a feel-good, laugh-out-loud type of movie!
