In this splendid comedy from director Philippe Le Guay, stockbroker Jean-Louis Joubert (the always marvellous Fabrice Luchini) lives a peaceful yet boring bourgeois existence with his socialite wife in 1960s Paris. But when a flock of exuberant Spanish maids moves into the sixth floor servants quarters, Jean-Louis’ world is turned upside down, particularly by beautiful Maria, whose irrepressible passion for life threatens to shake Jean-Louis from his staid foundation.

Lighter than a meringue and as insubstantial, the French boulevard comedy “The Women on the 6th Floor” was designed for the gentle laughter it easily earns. (NYtimes movies by Manhola Dargis)
Women on the 6th Floor is beautifully filmed, well acted and a topical reminder that success isn’t about how much money you have, but how you live – and boil your eggs. (Birmingham post by Graham Young)
