“Critic’s Pick! Quietly stunning. Miraculous… Finds pathos and a hint of magic in the routines of a young hotel worker. After you’ve seen it, the world looks different.”
– A. O. Scott, The New York Times
“Extremely moving. Quietly pulses with life. Brought to life with bristling sensitivity and dormant rage by Mexican actress Gabriela Cartol.”
– Oliver Jones, The Observer
“Newcomer Cartol is a revelation. There’s an inner light bursting to break free.”
– Kristen Lopez, Culturess
In her feature debut, theater director Lila Avilés turns the monotonous work day of Eve (Gabriela Cartol), a chambermaid at a high-end Mexico City hotel, into a beautifully observed film of rich detail. Set entirely in this alienating environment, with extended scenes taking place in the guest rooms, hallways, and cleaning facilities, this minimalist yet sumptuous movie brings to the fore Eve’s hopes, dreams, and desires. As with Alfonso Cuarón’s ROMA, set in the same city, The Chambermaid salutes the invisible women caretakers who are the hard-working backbone of society. — Film Society of Lincoln Center
