#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – The story of how a maid called Raquel, who has worked for over 20 years in one affluent Chilean household, rediscovers herself. La Nana is a microcosm of Latin social hierarchy while also focusing on one woman’s journey to free herself from a mental servitude of her own making
Plot: Raquel has been the live-in housekeeper for a kind, reasonably wealthy family for half her life, and the joyless repetition of the job has begun to take its toll. Increasingly dependent on painkillers, Raquel resorts to pranks and childish avoidance to antagonize the family’s college-age daughter and a procession of new servants, all in the hopes of protecting her precarious power within the home. Her antics successfully push everyone away, until new maid Lucy actually pushes back.

Good Housekeeping
Sebastián Silva concocts a film that would have tickled Freud and Karl Marx too. Without much of a heavy hand, the perils of the class system create an unusual tension for modern American audiences. We see the “suffering” of a domestic worker, Raquel. But with the current controversy of Latin American domestic workers in the U.S. as well as North American movies audiences programmed to unhappy oddballs pulling out the automatic weapons to exact revenge expectations the film sets-up are not ever realized. This is a character study of a woman, played with convincing and unnerving power by Catalina Saavedra, who has no emotional life outside the family she serves. They don’t abuse her, but they have no understanding of her deep attachment to them, and we enter the story as things begin to fray.

Raquel is moody and has resorted to passive-aggressive behavior in dealing with the family. It’s her birthday and she won’t come into the party prepared for her because, she says, she’s embarrassed. In fact, she’s in control of everyone. It’s a natural outcome of long-time maladjusted servitude where domestics are privy to the most intimate knowledge of family life, often knowing “secrets” about one family member that others don’t know. But Raquel is near breaking because no one has ever considered her own emotional needs and unconsciously, she senses, “Life is short.” Sensing the need for some kind of change, the mother decides to employ a second domestic to “help” Raquel, and the stage is set for high drama. Raquel takes offense that she’s considered inadequate, but she too hasn’t a clue as to what’s ailing her. It takes several assistants before someone arrives and recognizes the needs that Raquel has been not only been deprived of, but also she’s deprived herself. This second maid, Lucy, played with terrific abandon by Mariana Loyola is the key to the film. Lucy is everything the rest of characters aren’t. She’s fulfilled and happy. She knows herself and if something’s lacking, she calls it out.

What’s surprising is the filmmaker trusts the characters and doesn’t pander to the audience’s need for farce or melodrama. A scene where a frustrated second maid is locked out of the house by Raquel and winds up climbing a trellis to reenter seems perfectly natural. And while the emotional “breakthoughs” that Raquel will or won’t make are modest, and there’s no overt revolution by the domestics here, the change in Raquel from the beginning of the film to the final scene is substantial and beautifully played by Saavedra. Whether American audiences can stick with the modest goals that Sebastián Silva sets up is questionable, but the charm he finds in such a bleak situation is rare and always enjoyable.

“She’s like one of the family”
La Nana (2009), shown in the U.S. as “The Maid,” was written and directed by Sebastián Silva. This film recounts the life, and plight, of a maid in a well-to-do Chilean family. Catalina Saavedra portrays Raquel, who has worked for the same family for 23 years. She lives in their home, and knows their habits, secrets, and idiosyncrasies.

The problem is that Raquel has no life outside of the family, and nothing much to show for these years of devoted service. It’s true that everyone considers her “one of the family,” but she really isn’t. When her behavior becomes somewhat erratic, the family has to cope with the problem.

To their credit, they don’t consider firing Raquel, but their solution is to hire another maid. Raquel perceives this as a threat to her position and identity. Her efforts to force the new maids to leave are treated as comedy, and they are humorous, but beneath the humor is the sad fact that if Raquel loses her central position within the household, she loses her the only thing of value that she has.

Catalina Saavedra is outstanding as Raquel. In fact, it would be hard to imagine another actor in the role. You accept her as La Nana, and you have to remind yourself that this is a work of fiction, not a documentary about domestic service in Chile.

The film is worth seeking out, although the ending is not really satisfying. Despite the weak ending, it’s a movie made with skill and obvious respect for the protagonist. It was shown in the Dryden Theatre, Rochester, as part of the excellent Rochester Labor Film Series. It may be hard to find in a theater, and will work well on a small screen. See it!
