Critic Reviews for Domésticas

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

A spirited but fragmented comedy about the gulf between privilege and poverty, dreams and reality.

May 31, 2002 | Full Review…

Even if "Domesticas'' had succeeded as a comedy it only manages its laughs by making a mockery of its subjects. It ridicules them the way their rich employers do.

December 29, 2017 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Rings with life, color and laughter without either insulting or falsely glorifying the servant's life.

August 9, 2012 | Full Review…

Disappointingly, while Domésticas uses humor to touch on some of these disheartening issues, it fails to make a compelling statement that truly empathizes with the Brazilian housemaid's cause.
