Watch: Cama adentro 2004 123movies, Full Movie Online – Late in 2001, tough economic times in Buenos Aires mean that Beba, a slim, blond, and privileged divorcée, has no money to pay Dora, a doughy, nearly-silent maid who has lived with her for almost 30 years. Dora breaths in her dignity and resigns. She wants to finish work on her own house, with her less than reliable mate, Miguel. She also looks for a new job. Beba asks her ex-husband for financial help. He demurs. Can Beba adjust to new realities, find a way to pay Dora, and honor her lifetime of service, and can either make a life without the other? Does sisterhood cross class lines?.
Plot: Buenos Aires is in a deep recession. As the money runs out, the relationship between an employer and her live-in maid changes dramatically.

The human side of economic crisis
I haven’t seen a lot of Argentinian films, but I have enjoyed immensely the ones I have. This is a great example of the art-house films that are made in Argentina.

Jorge Gaggero was honored not only in Argentina, but at Sundance for this work that he wrote and directed.

It tells the story of a rich woman, Beba(Norma Aleandro, The Official Story), who has fallen on hard times and cannot afford to pay her electric or phone, much less her maid. The Maid, Dora (Norma Argentina in her first role), is trying to build a house on the outskirts of town and needs the money to finish, so she quits to find another job.

Everything is done with grace, as Beba tries to keep up appearances, even as she has resorted to selling cosmetics door-to-door to pay the bills, or in some cases, just to eat. The dance between employer-employee becomes more and more intricate as the power relationship changes.

The ending was a big surprise, but a testament to the love these two women had built up for each other over 30 years.

A superb film.

Review By: lastliberal
Dignity under duress
This slow but involving human drama takes Argentina’s recent economic meltdown as its prompt. Cama Adentro means ‘live-in maid’: Jorge Gaggero’s sensitive film pursues the deep but uneasy relationship between the genteel, newly-impoverished Beba (Norma Aleandro) and Dora (Norma Argentina), the servant with whom she’s shared her Buenos Aires apartment for almost 30 years.

Sudden lack of money has flipped the pair’s dependency. Unable to pay her maid for several months, lonely, prideful Beba stands to lose the only reliable company she’s known (her daughter, like her husband, has previously departed – alienated, we’re left to assume, by Beba’s haughtiness). Dora, meanwhile, must decide whether to stay and assist her unravelling employer, or take her chances in an economy with fewer and fewer jobs.

What could have become gooey and trite in the hands of a lesser director is instead rendered plausibly complex: the women struggle to preserve their dignity in straitened circumstances, and to forge a new accord based on mutuality rather than compulsion. Both Beba and Dora are endearingly flawed – the former supercilious and unyielding, the latter torn between contempt and sympathy for her former boss. Argentina is gruffly impressive as the emotionally-contained maid, while Aleandro’s monstrous but piteous snob is an equally sharp portrayal. In Gaggero’s measured telling, the pair’s not-quite-friendship rings all the more true for being revealed with unsentimental compassion.
