The story centers on Val, a hard-working live-in housekeeper in modern-day Sao Paulo. Val is perfectly content to take care of every one of her wealthy employers' needs, from cooking and cleaning to being a surrogate mother to their teenage son, who she has raised since he was a toddler. But when Val's estranged daughter Jessica shows up, the unspoken but intrinsic class barriers that exist within the home are thrown into disarray.

An excellent film highlighting the divide between those who are served and those who serve.

A wonderfully lighthearted comedy that manages to skewer middle-class foibles without the usual vitriol and sarcasm. In the role of Val, Regina Casé delivers pure comedy gold!

good depiction of the intergenerational mis/understanding of not stepping out of your 'station' in the server society. chilling use of the words 'almost a part'...

this is Brazil - but it could be anywhere where the wealthy rely on the invisibility of servants.

A good film about the class system in Brazil; well-acted.

This is a quiet film with warmth and unexpected humor. Regina Case is superlative.

A quiet kind of movie until Jessica, the housekeeper's daughter, comes and stirs things up. Good film!
