Luzmila and Peta are two sisters who inherit their mother's job and work as housemaids for aristocratic families. The two sisters know how to cater to señoras and are so well versed in the children's private lives they are almost considered a part of the family.., but maybe not to some. One day secrets are revealed as the families gather in celebration; soon the bubble of the serene and perfect aristocratic world are blown apart forever. —Busan Film Festival
Riots at the Dinner Table
The nuances and dramatics of family relations and political and economic orientation is highlighted in this hilarious comedy. The director peels back the layers and family storylines creating some of the funniest and engaging scenes I have seen in a long time. All leading up to a grand and satisfying climax. It's a drawing room / dining room comedy but with movement and, literally and figuratively, a riot in the streets of Lima and in the family dinnig room. It's all about family, that's what makes it so funny.
