A lighthearted comedic pie with a socially conscious crust, this French take on "The Help" is set in Paris in the early 1960s and "involves a seemingly hopeless, staid bourgeois businessman (Luchini) whose entire existence - family, career, sense of purpose and patrimony - is overturned after he discovers another, happier world with a group of Spanish maids living in his family's building." (NY Times)
